While most books are about patents and protecting your inventions, this book is about getting to the heart of inventing .This is a single reference that you can use when you want to start a new invention or project, or you can read it purely for the information that is in it. This book is not aimed at the professionals, even though there are some sections that they may find useful. You do not need a university degree to be creative and to be good at inventing, Inventing for the Rest of Us is written more for the average person, to help them gain confidence in having a go at inventing something themselves, no matter how small . It covers the simplest of ideas through to complex calculations. This book should encourage you to get out there and create your own ideas and dreams.
