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 forty 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 bestseller 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. Download and start listening now!
