Grate reading and easy explanations of the concepts and search methodologies.
This books concentrates only on few aspects of patent search and does not consider exploration of other avenues offered. Considering this it is still a nice book.
I found this book disappointing. It gives you a one sided view of patent search. Never mentioned is Google's new patent search that is attempting concept search - where is the mention of that? Inventors who need to perform a prior art search can do it easily themselves, and professionals will not find anything new here.
