It can be used by decision makers to help understand and evaluate the worth of their existing patent. Because of the outstanding writing and plain sense explanations provided on patent law and practical advice for responding to office actions, this book would also serve those who simply need or want to understand the US patent system better. --IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine
Matthew Ma has a deep understanding of the world of patents from the legal, technology, and business perspective. However, the brilliance of his book is the reduction of these complex concepts into easy to understand language. As the title would indicate, it is great for Scientists and Engineers, but also a must read for technology business leaders. --James Billmaier, Founder, Patent Navigation Inc.
