  • Can you afford a patent?

Must Listen

Of all the invention and patent books I've listened to, this short book packs the biggest punch. It gives a path, describes things I had not heard yet, and provides real life names and numbers of companies that will help get your invention off the ground. And the author himself is humble and personally offers assistance as well. Thank YOU Alan.

Not as good as Stephen Key's books

Alan Beckley recommends giving up on your idea too easily. He seems overly negative and not as experienced in how to work the system. He fails to explain many details in this short book. He says one patent is enough, rather than a "wall of patents"
