"Stephen Key has a rock-your-world passion for going large with even the most simple idea. Buy this book, grab your hardhat, and hang on."

About the Author
Stephen Key is an award-winning inventor, a renowned intellectual property strategist, a successful entrepreneur, and a best-selling author. The more than 20 products he has licensed over the past 35 years have sold in Walmart, 7-Eleven, and Disney stores and theme parks worldwide, as well as been endorsed by Michael Jordan, Alex Trebek, and Taylor Swift.
Along with business partner Andrew Krauss, Stephen co-founded inventRight, a company dedicated to teaching inventors, entrepreneurs, and anyone with an idea how to build wealth through licensing. Tim Ferriss, best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek, was an early student of his. He is also the Chief Technical Officer of SpinLabel Technologies.
Key's first book, One Simple Idea: How to Turn Your Dreams Into a Licensing Goldmine While Letting Others Do The Work, was published by McGraw-Hill in March 2011. It has since been translated into five other languages as well as consistently ranks first in books about small business marketing. His highly anticipated second book, One Simple Idea for Startups and Entrepreneurs, is a must-read for aspiring do-it-yourself businessmen.
He is also the author of The Licensing Lifestyle, a weekly column for Inc.com, as well as a long-standing contributor to Entrepreneur.com.

I know enough to know that Stephen's common sense approach is the fastest and smartest way to bring a new product to market. He has become my go-to guru for everything having to do with licensing.
A must read for anyone interested in bringing their ideas to market the fastest and most profitable way possible.
Great information definitely for inventor wannabees, beginners, and intermediate inventors..Definitely belongs in an Inventor Wannabes Library (along with his other two books via Amazon.com) ...
Fastest way to know you are talking to an experienced Inventor is if they start their answer with "It Depends". He does... This book needs/must be read many times with post notes and highlighter in hand .... Great non-fiction books require multiple readings .... He uses multiple personal stories to expand on his lessons.. I need to reread his Federal Court case against LEGO, that he won. His lessons gained there are included in this short 149 pg book, and may help you prepare to protect a big or small idea.
Weakness: He didn't caution readers about the sometimes late night Invention Infomercials. He might have in a prior book. Always needs repeating at every talk on inventing, even though the US Patent Office has good regulations to keep the dishonest ones out.
High Praises: For his insights with working with the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO.gov) and his counsel as to when to write your own Provisional Patent Application (PPA) and when to get it reviewed by a Patent Attorney. He explains how you could submit electronically, your own PPA for under $185 (Filing fees and Drawings) tomorrow and be able seconds later, add "Patent Pending" for a year to your KickStarter Product Campaign.
It will be required reading for members of our local Inventors meetup group, so I don't have to keep talking about the info covered in the book, at every meeting.
