Very impressed. Clear, usable insights into the business of IP, and particularly awareness of new strategic IP concepts and tools. I also find it effective for helping frame IP issues with clients and benchmarking to IAM best practice examples. Compares well with the LES journal, and both together cover a broad and thorough toolkit for any IP-centric businessperson.
