Attorneys Stim (License Your Invention) and Fishman (Working for Yourself) target small-business managers with this comprehensive explanation of nondisclosure agreements (NDAs). The book covers the use of the agreements to prevent theft of business secrets by employees and competitors, beginning with a discussion of what trade secrets are and which kind can be protected by NDAs and followed by a review of the essential elements of a basic nondisclosure form. There is a chapter on agreements for specific situations in which secrets might be divulged, such as software beta tests, employment interviews, business visits, and sharing customer lists. Readers will learn what the options are if an agreement is violated and how to find and work with an attorney to enforce an NDA. The book includes a glossary, a list of state signatories to the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and plenty of sample forms for NDAs printed in the text and on an accompanying CD-ROM. Highly recommended for business collections. Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach, Rochester, NY
