Do you want thicker, fuller, more lustrous hair? How about a bigger bustline? A six-pack of abs? Are you troubled by messy stains, garden pests, or an inexplicable desire to look like Richard Simmons? If you've answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, we can't really help you. But you might be amused by As Seen on TV - a treasure trove of all the gadgets, wizardry, and time-saving devices that have been on sale through TV in the United States. Here are real-life, behind-the-scenes stories of the Veg-O-Matic, K-Tel Records, Ginsu Knives, the Chia-Pet, the Thighmaster, Time-Life Books, The Clapper, The Greak Wok of China, and many, many others. Featured throughout are more than 100 colour photographs of all the goodies, plus expert analysis of the products and interviews with celebrity pitchmen like Ron Popeil (inventor of GLH System 9, which is basically spray paint "hair in a can"). To research this project, authors Lou Harry and Sam Stall spared no expense. They attended the taping of an infomercial. They became hooked on phonics. They listened to audio tapes of Zamphir, Master of the Pan Flute, and they watched videotapes of Charlton Heston explaining the Bible. As Seen on TV is an inspiration to entrepreneurs of all ages - and a wacky nostalgia trip for couch potatoes everywhere. Call now - operators are standing by!
