Patent Application Drafting (2015 Edition), by Morgan D. Rosenberg: The proper drafting of a patent application takes into account technical breadth, legal strategy, conformance with a vast number of rules and regulations codified in U.S. statutory law, guidelines issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and over a hundred years of constantly evolving case law. Present texts on the drafting of U.S. patent applications generally fall into two categories: First are the weighty legal treatises that focus on theory and case law to the detriment of practical information; second are the "patent it yourself" books, which are very basic and limited in scope, and thus not of much use to a practicing patent attorney or patent agent.

Patent Application Drafting actually teaches the drafting of patent applications from a practical perspective. Intended as an introductory text, it covers the entire patent application and includes many helpful examples illustrating the process from start to finish. The 2015 Edition is written primarily for novice patent attorneys and agents, law students, and those studying for the patent bar exam. Nevertheless, this product may also be used as a reference for experienced practitioners that require up-to-date analysis while drafting any patent application and includes many application examples for guidance.

    "I can only hope that each and every novice practitioner and newly minted Patent Examiner is handed this book on their first day. I don't know if reading a book can be considered a form of 'mentorship,' but this book is certainly the best attempt at old-fashioned teaching methods (i.e., the ones that actually worked) I've ever come across." —RICHARD J. APLEY Former Director of the Office of Independent Inventor Programs United States Patent and Trademark Office
