Bunch of Amateurs. Inside America’s hidden world of inventors, tinkerers and job creators. Jack Hitt.2012. iSBN 9780307393760. The author is a regular contributor on science related material to New York Times magazine and others of that ilk. This is a fairly slow moving non trivial journey through the realms of the people you would never hear about who are doing some very curious and interesting things. On first contact you might classify them as cranks or eccentrics who have carried a hobby to an obsession. The author takes the time to peel the onion of their life back to show how they just may have something for you to learn here. As well you will learn a few different psychological applications of anchoring and crowd sourcing on our belief structures. Hitt carefully removes much of the mistaken assumptions around several American urban myths. The book does not race, but it flows nicely and might fit as a useful summer read.
