Booklist Review

When Thomas Edison made his famous remark about genius being 99 percent perspiration, he didn't even have to take into account the labor and frustration involved in conducting a patent search. The Bellavances' guide, though, will help take some of the sweat out of getting a patent and bringing a new product to market. Inventors themselves, the authors provide clear explanations, thorough details, candid advice, and important caveats for each step of the process. They explain what patents are, why they are necessary, and how to get one, but they also highlight several misconceptions about them. Moreover, they follow through with the entire spectrum of practical marketing tips. Among the considerations they include are licensing, test marketing, invention promotion groups, identifying and selecting manufacturers, trade shows, etc. They also recommend that those conducting a patent search put themselves in the hands of the "trustworthy and highly trained staff" at the various patent depository libraries. This comment alone shows that the Bellavances know what they are talking about and guarantees the value of their guidance. --David Rouse
