"A well-developed technology without a successful market implementation
has no economic value. Hence, technology development and implementation must be
studied as a single integrated subject. Product Idea to Product Success
is a perfect book for engineering students because it ties together product development
and marketing into an integrated approach. The book is easy to read and covers
the complete roadmap from idea to market."
Stephen C-Y Lu, Ph.D, Director of USC Product Development Engineering Program
"Product Idea to Product Success provides a good review of important material covered in the first semester, for example, marketing research, economic feasibility of an idea etc. The book also gives the students a good look at issues that are not covered in full until the third and final semester of the program, for example, intellectual property protection, and fills gaps in our knowledge base with subjects such as development of prototypes and other manufacturing issues. Overall the book provides detailed, pragmatic guidance with details of new venture development work that often is overlooked by students who are developing a business plan."
Barbara Fossum, Instructor University of Texas IC2 Institute

"I have read many books on the Invention Process. Product Idea to Product Success has to be one of the best ones out there. This book is very organized, well written and easy to understand. You'll feel like the author is guiding you like a coach every step of the way. Matthew Yubas did a great job not only covering certain topics, but he really went into detail and applied examples. As an inventor, I found this very useful. In addition, I found this book to be a wealth of resources. I wish I would have read this book first. I would highly recommend this book."

"This book has helped me tremendously in getting my idea to market. I had no idea of the resources that were so readily available to amateur inventors like myself, and this book is definitely at the top of that list. By following Matthew 's easy to read instructions, I have literally, in months, gone from simple idea to marketing and manufacturing. I have a patent on my product and am currently negotiating directly with potential licensees. I no longer feel like an amateur inventor, I truly feel like a product developer thanks to this book! Thanks Matthew , great book!!"
