I knew nothing about patents before this book. I have already done very important things to ensure I receive my patent which I learned from this book. This purchase is very worth it! The book is very easy to understand & I had the librarians at the houston patent library recommend it.

The Inventor's Notebook is a useful tool for someone wanting to invent and patent a new idea. Understand that it is just a tool, and you will still need professional advice if you are going through the patent process. However, this is definitely a good place to start.
