Publisher's Summary

We all have great ideas, and every day, ordinary people turn their simple, clever ideas into products or services that earn them millions in royalties. So what separates those who earn money exploiting their ideas from those who don't? Here's the answer: this audiobook will give you all the information and all the motivation you need to turn your ideas into money without investment or financial risk.Totally revised and updated, this Second Edition covers recent changes in patent law and how the Internet has impacted modern licensing.
Author Harvey Reese, a successful new-product developer, consultant, and licensing agent, reveals his proven step-by-step process for formulating an idea that manufacturers are willing to pay for. He gives you the nuts and bolts information on patents, negotiating the deal, and the licensing process. Filled with examples of successful, well-known licensing ventures, How to License your Million Dollar Idea has all the information and motivation you need to grow your idea into a fortune.

PAINFUL

VERY frustrating. I was hoping to learn something about patenting ideas. This book speaks at a painfully low level. The author spends most of the time advising the listener on how to GET an idea, so the book is very poorly titled. Annoyingly, the level of ideas he "guides" you to achieving are things like: a wire-rim to hold open garbage bags for use while raking leaves, suction cup pads to hold a notepad on a car window, and artificial flowers attached to a greeting card.
If you listen to this book be prepared to spend many hours of your time listening to cutesy and totally irrelevant sayings and ad pitches for you to go to the author's website so you can pay $180 for him to evaluate your idea. If you are interested in picking up some actual information about licensing or patents, you will have to wait MANY hours to get even the smallest tidbit. Most of the book is motivational sayings i.e. "You can DO it!" or "You've got to positively imagine your goals!!". It really makes the listener feel like they are on a special episode of Oprah specifically for imbeciles.
I blame myself for not researching the author more before purchaing the book, but this is the first Audible book I have not enjoyed. Hopefully, Audible will discontinue this product as soon as possible so that others will not feel that they've been screwed out of their money.

Outdated

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not worth it, this is an outdated book and refers often to pre email. There is some sound content, but it's so so old that I just didn't get the sense that it was up to day.
