Best Invention/Patent/Business Book I’ve Read

Would you listen to Hardcore Inventing again? Why?

Yes, there is a lot of useful advice.

Any additional comments?

This book is well written and narrated. To write a book on the invention process, is quite difficult. I have found that most of the books in this genera over simplify and over generalize the process. The authors beautifully blend practical real life stories with concepts of invention, patenting, and bringing your invention to market. This not only motivates the reader but also helps the reader understand the lessons for success.
