What people say about the book

"Adventures of an Inventor" by Jacob Fraden


What’s a man to do when he lives in the Soviet Union but he’s brimming with ideas for innovations? Answer: Invent a way to get to the U.S. where he can turn ideas into products and turn frustration into fame and fortune. I loved the engrossing human stories in Jake Fraden’s odyssey from communism to capitalism. Knowing as I do how hard it is to open people’s mind to innovation, I found Fraden’s pragmatic approach to the world both fascinating and enlightening.”

Alan R. Tripp - author, “Millions from the Mind: How to Turn Your Ideas, or Someone Else’s into a Fortune”

“This book holds the key to unlocking the creativity within each of us. Jacob Fraden shows you how to turn ideas into actions. He doesn’t just offer a few useful tips—his life is an example how to do it with courage.”

Edward S. O’Dell
-Chairman, Digital Devices Corp.
