Editorial Reviews


"A must have for every inventor's bookshelf and workshop. In my 35 years of dealing with inventors, this is the one to read."  —Ronald E. Brown, president, Patent Search International

"A most comprehensive and well-planned guide for inventors! It addresses every possible topic an inventor needs to consider during each phase of product development and is written in a clear, easy-to-undertand format."  —Edie Tolchin, EGT Global Trading, Inventor Resource

"Tells the inventor, in simple language, how to evaluate an idea, how to protect it, and how to get it to market without going broke . . . the essential resource for every successful inventor."  —Alan Beckley, business consultant, Small Business Development  Corporation, former president, Texas Inventors' Association, and inventor of the Savvy Caddy®

"Exceedingly reader friendly and inventor helpful. It nails the issues squarely and to the point, while maintaining a very supportive and 'can-do' tone, which all of us need to hear, especially when the going gets rough."  —Carol Oldenburg, administrator, United Inventors Association
