"Inventing is easy if your brain is wired that way. Developing inventions into real products also isn't rocket science if you know how. Converting inventions into licenses that'll turn into real products, protecting your work, making the cash register ring... now that's the hard part. No one is better at doing all of these things than Richard Levy whose track record for inventing and licensing successful toys and games is a mile long. What's more, he has an uncanny knack for describing all facets of the whole process in books that really teach. This current one is no exception. Go get it."
-Ralph H. Baer, father of the console video game industry, inventor of SIMON and many other toys and games, the 2010 Inductee in the Inventor's Hall of Fame, and the 2004 Winner of the National Medal of Technology. He is president of R.H. Baer Consultants.
