My review of the book
This book provides a good explanation of the invention process. The real life stories teach inventors of the potential pitfalls commonly encountered by new inventors. It maps out an inventors voyage through invention, development of the product, to protection and marketing. I think The Inventors Bible is a good book for independent inventors. The book is well written, very readable and covers a lot of useful topics. The Inventor’s Bible is an excellent collection of practical information from an inventors prospective, based on the author’s business experience. Even though the book is not presented from a legal viewpoint it is helpful because it looks at inventing, patenting and product development from a business angle.
