Ingenious is an electric car book that's based on modernization and grassroots invention. It's a common sentiment around the world that everything is bigger in the US, but in the latest 'Ingenious,' author Jason Fagone proves that American capacity for invention is huge.

The book follows four teams of amateur and professional automotive designers, engineers and garage inventors as they compete for the X Prize Foundation's $10 million award. The quest is to build a safe car that can be produced on an assembly line and travel 100 miles on the equivalent of a tank of gas.

The story reveals the lives of a rich cast of characters who risk it all for a shot at the prize. This book is meant for those with a passion for autos.
