Profiles those who  challenged conventional wisdom & marketed their inventions, & some who resisted initial criticism only to back down from their claims. Includes sketches of those who have influenced the industry: Bernard Macfadden, Jack LaLanne & Johnny G. Presents an eye-opening view of the inside workings of a multimillion-dollar business.
