The Classic Guide to Cashing in on Your Million Dollar Idea

If you have an idea or invention for a great new product, an app, an online business, or a reality show, How to License Your Million Dollar Idea delivers the information you need to snag a great licensing deal. Now in its third edition, this book has become the go-to source for budding inventors and entrepreneurs who have great ideas and want to cash in on them—without putting themselves at financial risk. Licensing is how you can make that happen, and this book explains exactly how it's done, by a master in this business.
