This hilarious, biting satire centers around a feisty, idealistic teacher whose frustration with textbooks unexepctedly lands her a job as editor of a fifth grade American history book. Ellen wants "to bring history to the people" ... like Barbara Tuchman." She finds that creating this text is about selling to school districts while not offending any group. She becomes outraged when forced to omit a historical figure because he had a dicey background: he drank. Ellen gets little help from her ambitious assistant and her chic, bitter supervisor. And the V.P. of the department, a sleazy, sexist, sexually harassing incompetent, is no help at all. Ellen's last hope is that the author, famous historian Professor Gregory Chrichton, will come to her defense and show them all how to reach students with the book. In a wickedly funny climax, she confronts the business of education and learns the difference between selling textbooks and teaching them children.

"A fascinating history of the unexpected intersection of science, technology and show business." -John Steele Gordon, author of Hamilton's Blessing "Once upon a time, American know-how flourished through show-how: spectacular demonstrations by ever resourceful technological entrepreneurs. David Lindsay brings back these glorious (and sometimes infamous) theatricals in a delightful, witty, narrative with a serious point: the American inventor, now relegated to endless rehearsals, needs to resume a rightful place on the national center stage. For admirers and critics of technology and for veteran and inspiring inventors, Madness in the Making will give pleasure and inspire debate." -Edward Tenner. Author of Why Things Bite Back
