Meet the Vacuum Rebel

Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll be featuring in our upcoming issue of Inventors Digest :

We travelled to Malmesbury, England, to meet with James Dyson, inventor of the Cyclone line of bagless vacuums. Our story chronicles his 14-year struggle to market his revolutionary line of products. Established industry experts mocked and rebuffed him.
“If there were a way to build a better vacuum,” they all told him, “Hoover or Electrolux would have invented it.” When Dyson proved them wrong and his product became the leading-selling vacuum in the UK, some of those very naysayers copied his products and infringed on his patents.
His is an amazing story of intelligence and persistence, tinged with a bit of rebellion. Look for the July issue to hit in the coming weeks. Early editions will be available at Edison Nation, where you can get a free subscription to the print edition by becoming a Gold Member.

I look forward to reading your article about James Dyson. I read his autobiography "Against the Odds" a few years ago and enjoyed it very much.
