Steve Greenberg is an invention groupie. Born into a family of patent filers, Steve has always respected and praised America's inventors. It was that fascination that caused Steve to write a book about garage inventors. Steve travels the country looking for innovative products. That's why he has been dubbed "The Innovation Insider." Steve can be seen each month demonstrating innovative products in five of the top ten television markets (New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and Houston).
