Product Description

The host of the NBC Today Show's popular segment shares his favorite stories of citizens making a difference around the country.

For the six million people who watch the Emmy Award-winning "American Story with Bob Dotson" on NBC's Today Show, Bob Dotson's reports celebrate the inspirational stories of everyday Americans. Dotson has been crisscrossing the country for more than 40 years - logging more than four million miles - in search of people who have quietly but profoundly changed our lives and our country for the better.

Now, in American Story, he presents a road map to the unsung heroes with thoughtful solutions to problems we all face, incredible ideas that work, and blueprints to living our dreams. This inspiring book includes the stories of the boss who came out of retirement to start a new company for his former employees who could not find work; the truck driver who taught microsurgery; the man you've never heard of who has 465 profitable patents, second only to Thomas Edison; the doctor who developed the vaccine to prevent whooping cough, who didn't retire until age 104.

In the tradition of Tom Brokaw's New York Times best seller The Time of Our Lives, American Story is a deeply moving and endlessly fascinating alternative narrative for everyone who yearns to feel good about America.
