That is some easy reading in a few months.   I will trade you a few patent law books if you can find me a few books on knee operations.  My friend twisted his ACL playing football and I want to operate next week.  Let me know.

 
 
It is nice to see some good clean humor every now and then.   To the original poster, many inventors read "Patent it Yourself by Pressman.    That may give you an overview of the process associated with patent prosecution.   I hear it is good, though I have never read it myself.

Sean:
I think you have the right idea. Like many other topics, IP (no, not Internet Protocol, Intellectual Property!!!) is severely  shortchanged in all curriculums (by they way, so is Tax Law). The fact is, that educators teach what they learned, and most of them can't spell Patent (and used to have their taxes done by H&R Block).
 
Short and long, go to B&N (or your favorite bookstore) and poke around the IP section. You will get a number of decent books to explain to you the 50K feet view. How much lower you want to go, is going to depend on how much you really care to do.
 
Best of luck,

"Patent Strategies for Business" 3rd Edition
Stephen Glazier
Published 2000 Cool
 
This is a good read describing how patents are used by business. It is not a legal treatise, law has changed since 2000, but will provide a grasp of IP for use as a sword or a shield. It will help if a, "Tell me why do we need patents?" Q comes up.
