Early Praise for MAKING INNOVATION PAY: "Bruce Berman has persuaded, arm twisted and otherwise cajoled today’s most successful patent practitioners into telling their stories and allowing him to tell theirs. Until now, no book has discussed innovation in so resolutely clear-eyed, personal and practical business terms…
[Making Innovation Pay] breaks new ground by giving voice to resourceful and articulate individuals who have the courage to brave new trails and the generosity to share how they do it." -Kevin Rivette Vice President, IP Strategy IBM Corporation
"Drawing upon an all star line-up of IP thought leaders and practitioners, Bruce Berman, yet again, knocks the cover off the ball. Making Innovation Pay provides critical insight into both the art and the craftsmanship of those who successfully shape today's IP landscape and are entrusted with developing tomorrow's. Berman brings clarity, insight and leadership to all those who find themselves—willingly or not—at the leading edge of IP issues in today's economy." -John A. Squires Chief Intellectual Property Counsel Goldman, Sachs & Co.
"Innovation and enterprise distinguish the US from other nations. The contributors to Making Innovation Pay, diverse IP success stories, take us full circle with strong perspectives on invention and profit. Berman’s book is as much framed by a vision of American history as it is by business strategy, technology or finance." -Hon. Q. Todd Dickenson Vice President & Chief IP Counsel, General Electric Company Undersecretary of Commerce and Commissioner of the US Patent and Trademark Office, 1998-2001
"Making Innovation Pay is a thoroughly enjoyable read brimming with fascinating insights from the stories of intellectual property asset innovators. Berman shines a spotlight on the lives of these IP pioneers, who you will recognize from the arrows in their backs and the roads less traveled."
-Louis Berneman Former Managing Director Center for Technology Transfer University of Pennsylvania
"Bruce Berman is one of the first people to make intellectual property entertaining. Making Innovation Pay’s sharply focused essays by, and portraits of, the world’s best (and richest) IP business people, inventors and lawyers must be read and savoured by anyone who values the importance of new ideas."
-Ian Harvey Chairman, Intellectual Property Institute, London CEO, British Technology Group
