New edition of The Inventor's Bible has arrived

I'm glad to announce that the library has received several copies of the new edition of Ronald Louis Docie's venerable The Inventor's Bible. Now in its third edition, this book offers up tips for the fledgling inventor on product development, intellectual property protection, licensing, and developing a commercialization strategy; in a word, the nuts and bolts tasks involved in getting a product to the marketplace.

Docie is an engaging writer, with a calm tone and presence of mind that, to my thinking, is very helpful for someone looking to commercialize a product. This book is an essential recommendation for the inventor who arrives at the reference desk breathless, eyes darting around desperately seeking a patent before someone steals her idea. Docie's treatment of the invention development process is holistic, realistic, and not patent-centric.

The circulating copies will be located in the Main Library's Business, Science, and Technology Department on the 4th Floor. Get 'em while they're hot!
