Everyone has heard of a “Ponzi scheme,” but do you know what Charles Ponzi actually did to make his name synonymous with fraud? Credit for inventing radio usually goes to Marconi or David Sarnoff and RCA - but if you’ve never heard of Edwin Armstrong or Lee de Forest, you know only half the story.
You’ve probably been to a Disney theme park, but did you know that the park Walt believed would change the world was actually EPCOT? He died before his vision for it could ever be realized. History is about so much more than dates and dead guys; it’s the greatest story ever told. Now, in this powerful follow-up to his national bestseller “Miracles and Massacres,” Glenn Beck brings ten more true and untold stories to life.
From the spy Alger Hiss, to the visionary Steve Jobs, to the code-breaker Alan Turing - once you know the full stories behind the half-truths you’ve been force fed your perspective on today’s important issues may forever change.
