"Is this book worth buying? Let's put it this way: Before I had even finished reading it, I had bought a copy and overnighted it to a client. After I finished it, I bought a second copy for another client."

--Herbert R. Schulze

"For the first time, corporate intermediary participants in the US patent system have access to a reference text that is dedicated to addressing their specific needs. The Corporate Insider's Guide to U.S. Patent Practice is precisely what it professes to be, and it should be embraced by corporate insiders everywhere."
