Interview: Steve Greenberg, Author, Gadget Nation, UIA Board Member on Got Invention Radio


Steve Greenberg has always been drawn to ingenuity and invention. It was that fascination that caused Steve to write a book about garage inventors for Sterling Publishing. The book showcases more than 100 off-beat gadgets and the inventors behind them. The book, GADGET NATION: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE ECCENTRIC WORLD OF INVENTION (www.gadgetnation.net) is in its second printing and has recently been launched as a paperback. Steve is currently on the Board of Directors for the United Inventors Association ().http://www.uiausa.org/

Steve writes for several magazines, newspapers and websites. His “Innovation Insider” features appear in the Miami Herald, Air Currents magazine, ROOMS magazine, WhatsWowNow.com and others.
