Reviews & endorsements
"Frank covers a lot of ground in Intellectual Property for Managers and Investors ...But at a slim 165 pages, the book is manageable; its practical guidelines are crisply laid out. And in the somewhat murky world of IP management, that is most definitely a plus."
Suzanne Stevens, Corporate DealmakerSee more reviews
"This book will be a welcome addition to any development lab’s library and should be required reading for senior managers who work in business development. It would also make an excellent reference text for an in-house IP seminar, repeated at regular intervals."
Reardon Smith, NPDP, CMC, Journal of Product Innovation Management
