Atom Bomb to Santa Claus: What Have the Americans Ever Done for Us?

By Trevor Homer

Three cheers for the ingenious, inventive, United States of America!

From the kitchen to the office to outer space, America has been at the forefront of the advances of the human race for the last two centuries. It’s given birth to more new products, devices, medicines, leisure pursuits, sports, musical genres, and vehicles than any other country or people ancient or modern. More Nobel prize winners come from these shores than the next five countries combined.

Atom Bomb to Santa Claus celebrates the country’s pioneering drive by describing some of its greatest innovations and some of its greatest – and most surprising – inventors. It challenges the imagination to know that the same country that gave the world the artificial heart and e-mail, also originated sliced bread and Chinese fortune cookies.

Guaranteed to entertain and enlighten, Atom Bomb to Santa Claus is an amazing chronicle of some of America’s most important and imaginative creations.
