Design engineer and high-technology trainer Grissom and attorney, former patent examiner, and author (Patent It Yourself) Pressman explain to inventors how to maintain good records of the inventing process, create a legal record that they invented an invention first, convince others of its work, proceed realistically toward commercial potential, and organize all the information in one place. Many forms are included. They do not detail patent law or how to create and run a business, but refer often to Pressman's book, which does. No dates are noted for previous editions.
