True to its "Pending" title, the book covers what you need to do to get a Provisional Patent Application. The PPA costs around $100 and is good for a year to protect your patent while figuring out whether you want to proceed to a full patent application, which costs thousands. I was able to file a PPA for my reef aquarium accessory patent so easily a couple days after reading this book. As another reviewer pointed out, get the companion book "Patent it Yourself" for more details on where to go next, as this book makes several references to "Patent it Yourself." This book fills nicely fills the need to get some immediate protection without combing through an entire library.

Do not sell me a book on how to accomplish something and then leave parts out that I should learn by buying an additional book. Put that material in the same d#$@ book!

Very thick tome of 500+ pages. Haven't dived in deep enough to tell if it answers all my questions yet. But, should address most, from what I could tell so far.

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), provisional applications for patent may not be filed for design inventions.

Not bad but you can get the same info from calling the patent office and using their web site

This book tells you everything you need to know about filing a patent in an easy-to-read and reference format. I picked it up to thumb through a few pages and ended up sitting with it for over an hour. This will be a welcome addition to my bookshelf!
