In honor of National Inventors’ Month® – August, Inventors’ Digest® magazine will unveil a compilation of its best and brightest articles from the past two decades, providing the first downloadable volume free of charge throughout August, to help novice inventors move from idea to product development success. The 20 volume series contains more than 200 articles.

“Knowing what NOT to do is probably more important than knowing what to do,” says Joanne Hayes-Rines, publisher of Inventors’ Digest®. “I’ve met thousands of people who had what could have been a great idea, but they did everything wrong, burning through money and time. Their idea was doomed before it ever had a chance. We’ve brought together our best tips and advice from the last two decades to help inventors avoid these pitfalls.”

Inventing 101: What Every First Time Inventor MUST Know,” is the first of a 20 volume series of the Best of Inventors’ Digest®, and it is available at no charge during August.

In addition to serving as a resource to first-time inventors, the “Best of” publication will also be of interest to policy-makers and advocates who work on intellectual property issues.

The first volume outlines how inventors can find trustworthy companies and individuals to help guide them from invention to market, how to determine if an idea has market potential, and how to spot a scam company. “We know that a lot of people have, unfortunately, lost money with fraudulent invention marketing companies,” says Hayes-Rines. “So we are offering a bonus article that explains what they can do to get their money back.”

National Inventors’ Month® celebrates American ingenuity and the contributions that independent inventors make to society and the nation’s economy. Products as diverse and as economically significant as the laser, the implantable cardiac pacemaker, air conditioning, the ATM, the jet ski, the respirator and even the World Wide Web are just a few of the scores of products that were invented by independent inventors, not in corporate R&D labs.

Since 1985, Inventors’ Digest® – the only inventors’ magazine in the country – has guided inventors by publishing success stories about independent inventors’ products as well as articles written by experts in all areas of new product development. The Best of Inventors’ Digest® compiles these articles by topic, starting with the basics and moving on to market research, patents, how to find money, prototyping, licensing and marketing.

Volume I of The Best of Inventors’ Digest® can be downloaded free at during National Inventors’ Month® – August.
