The content and narration are top notch. The tips are highly practical. However, the audio chapters don't match the book/narrator. This is very frustrating. In the middle of an audio chapter you would have a new book chapter beginning. 2 minutes after an audio chapter begins a book chapter ends. The narrator would refer to chapter 16 which is audio chapter 18. This drove me insane. There ought to be an invention to match the audio chapters with book chapters, Stephen?

A useful, albeit highly repetitive tome for acolytes of the Tim Ferriss. If you have ever found yourself designing a better widget or product in your head, but never taking the steps necessary to make your dream a reality, then this might be the book to get you inspired to take that action.
Summary: First understand how your product will be manufactured. Second, find the right manufacturer for your product. Third, determine the profitability/margin of the product. Fourth, summarize the utility of your product in a single phrase and develop a product sell sheet. Fifth, read and understand the rules for U.S. Provisional Patent Applications, then file one. Last, start dialing for dollars. The repetitive “padding” did become tiresome and the play speed button was very useful indeed.
The real value of the book comes when Key describes how he works around difficulties and sets realistic expectations for the process of licensing a product. So, skip filing a “full patent" or building a prototype till you know that your product is refined and that both you and manufacturer will make money.
Worth buying for dreamers who need to know the next step.
