In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

Think you need a patent? Think again. Many of the products Stephen Key has licensed required no intellectual property protection whatsoever, yet have made millions in royalties. But Key also knows what it takes to protect a big idea. Years ago, after reading about how medication bottles rarely contain enough space for the information that needs to be printed on them, he was inspired to develop an innovative label technology.

This book contains proven steps and strategies for how to patent your invention so that only you can benefit from it. Patent law can be complicated and this book attempts to make it simple enough for laymen to understand so that they'll know everything they need to be able to file a patent. In addition, the information in this book can help increase the chances that your application for a patent is approved. Keep in mind that the US Patent and Trademark Office receives an average of 500,000 patent applications a year.

This is more like a short article than a book. Although useful if you don't have a clue about the process of patent filling, it still should include more details and examples.

Competition has been a common thread in Bill Gates' life since he was born. Both of his parents had competitive careers and expected no less from him. Whether playing sports or excelling in the classroom, he was pressured to excel and rewarded for success. But how can something as simple as winning prizes for soccer games translate into becoming the richest man in the world?

Useful book if a general view is the reader's aim. Less comprehensive than I expected.
