Review quote

"Patenting an idea can be really expensive and intimidating. When I was starting out, I read this terrific book called Patent It Yourself, by a lawyer named David Pressman. It was really straightforward. Using that book, I wrote GoPro s first patent myself. It was this 600-page tome that I went maniacal on. When I took it to the attorneys to get their opinion and to see how much it would cost for them to finalize it, they told me I d just saved myself a lot of money I d basically done the whole thing myself. More important, the book gave me a good understanding of what s patentable and what s not. For any entrepreneur who s inventing something, it s the one book you should read." "Bloomberg Business Week - Ask a Billionaire: GoPro's Nick Woodman on the Book 'Patent It Yourself'." "For some thirty years Patent It Yourself has covered basics of getting a patent and become the 'go to' reference of choice for inventors: here patent attorney Pressman updates his volume with the latest laws, forms, and instructions geared to preparing a patent application, evaluating a product's commercial appeal, handling infringers, and protecting rights at home and abroad. Chapters are packed with forms and the latest legal advice and represent some forty years of the author's experiences as a patent attorney. Any general legal reference collection will find this a timely, popular pick!" "The Midwest Book Review" "If you want to cut through the patent red tape and possibly save thousands of dollars, Patent It Yourself... has all the forms and instructions needed to patent a product in the United States."
