So much about the patenting process can be arcane, confusing, and counter-intuitive to the non-patent professional. It does all make sense--even the claims!!!--once you understand the patent system's underlying philosophies, but somebody has to lay it all out for you. Teska's book does that. It is at once an informative and accessible read. I particularly resonated with Teska's 25 or so "Patent Myths," which encapsulate so much of what the potential inventor and her manager probably think (wrongly!) about the patent process. Been there, done that with my own clients. Patent Savvy for Managers will help the reader answer such threshold questions as: "Is there an invention here that could be patented? and "Will it be worthwhile to do so?" Also, by cluing in the reader as to what the patent attorney is trying to accomplish in drafting the patent application, Teska prepares the inventor and her manager to participate more fully and more intelligently in the patenting process--including evaluating the patent attorney's proposed claims to make sure that the invention is properly protected. This would be a good book, too, for a patent attorney to share with clients. "Read this," the attorney might say, "and you'll see what we are trying to accomplish." A book like this is long overdue--especially for managers in smaller companies with no in-house IP legal resources. In fact I had been planning to write one just like it. Now I'm not so sure. Teska has already done it. Ronald Slusky Author of: Invention Analysis and Claiming: A Patent Lawyer's Guide
