"This comprehensive book about the ins and outs of patents is very well written and puts together many examples."

"This book provides specific how-to guidance and is very effective at instilling the importance of patenting in a cost-sensitive and time-sensitive manner to non-attorney inventors and managers. … The author has given us a practical and memorable guide to the patenting process."
―Keith A. Roberson, Intellectual Property and Technology Counsel, 3D Systems Corporation
"Extremely readable, the book explains both the big picture and the important details. It covers such issues as: provisional and non-provisional patent applications, effective filing dates, non-obviousness, enablement, infringement vs. validity, the different ways to write claims, and who does/does not qualify as an inventor. A must read for scientists, engineers, and inventors who need to protect their innovations."
―Dr. Natale M. Ceglio, Chief Technology Officer, Media Lario Technologies, SRI
"This book is a pleasure to read and provides a very complete course in intellectual property for technology patenting. I wish it had been published earlier, and I recommend it to everyone who seeks to understand how to navigate this process."
