Millions from the Mind
What You'll Learn
Yes, all of that is covered in surprising depth with all fundamentals illustrated by real life examples. Of course the depth for, say, patenting won't enable you to write your own patent applications like a professional or any thing like that but it will give you the knowledge you need to make intelligent decisions when dealing with professionals. Please note--the book will give you the "knowledge," not the "intelligence," which you'll have to supply either by yourself or with cohorts that you build into a team. And the book tells you how to build that team too. In fact as you read the book it will be clearer and clearer that your success is very likely to be determined more, given some basic caveats, by the people on your team than by your invention or any piece of paper that "protects" it.
