Book Description:

The successful inventor of SKYY Vodka, the D-Fuzz-It Sweater Comb, Tangoes & more, gives a step-by-step approach for turning a good idea into a fortune.

From the Publisher:

Maurice Kanbar, inventor of SKYY, the "no hangover" vodka, as well as the D-Fuzz-It Sweater Comb and dozens of other innovative products, shows readers how to turn good ideas into money-making products in Secrets from an Inventor's Notebook. Using his personal experiences as examples, Kanbar walks readers through the entire inventing process from solving a problem and building a prototype, to financing, marketing, and selling the freshly-minted goods. When Kanbar noticed that fuzz balls from his sweater were pulled off by a rough wall he was leaning against, he got the idea for inventing the D-Fuzz-It Sweater Comb. When his favorite after-dinner drink gave him a headache, he went to work and SKYY Vodka was born. From his earliest inventions to his latest project--Vermeer Dutch Chocolate Cream Liqueur launching in January 2001--Kanbar has followed a series of five steps which he shares in Secrets from an Inventor's Notebook. Kanbar's hands-on manual also includes detailed appendices containing contact information for patent and copyright offices, mold-makers, blueprint makers, and manufacturing plants. With dozens of profitable inventions under his belt, his success is proof that it can be done. And, with Secrets from an Inventor's Notebook as a guide, many more potential inventors and entrepreneurs can follow in his footsteps.
