This is a bizarrely crafted look at Ayn Randian individuals who impacted the US, told from a technological stand point. The tone is conversational to the point of being disruptive. Check amazon reviews for better reading recommendations.

A celebration of the difference many individual Americans made in the history of the country and in many cases the world. Some names are familiar but delightful to learn some new ones, private and public, pioneers in their day. He tells their stories in a creative framework of wood, earth, water, fire, air and metal -- from Lewis and Clark to the web. Winchester does get a little carried away sometimes with his rapture over the New Deal, etc but it did not detract from my enjoying the book.

This is anything but an objective history book. The author has compiled a list of theories to suit his left wing progressive agenda. What a pile of crapola.
