No dry reference tome, Invention Analysis and Claiming is accessible, making its points in the context of everyday inventions like the ball point pen and the paper clip. The text is engaging and its teachings made memorable by imaginative metaphors and succinct prescriptions for practice. Readers are also shown how the notions of problem, solution and inventive concept can serve as a framework for writing the specification and, later, for amending the claims. And those new to patent practice will be particularly helped by the inventor interview technique called Self-Directed Learning.

As a newer patent agent looking for guidance in writing a high quality patent application, I have found this book to be a wonderful ¿mentor¿ in teaching me how to take a logical approach to writing the application. The book provides extremely useful guidance on how to approach the writing of an application from the patent drafter¿s first encounter with the invention through the submission of the application. Ron¿s theme of focusing in on the core inventive concept at each step of the drafting process has been very useful in reminding me to pay attention to the forest while I¿m in the trees. Additionally, I have found helpful his emphasis on stepping into a potential patent infringer¿s shoes in order to try to spot weaknesses in the application BEFORE submission. In addition to reading the book, I have also had the privilege of learning from Ron personally. This book is a lucid and enjoyable extension of his personal teachings. I highly recommend this practical guide to anyone who wants to advance their patent prosecution skills.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
