Crackpot or Genius?: A Complete Guide to the Uncommon Art of Inventing by Francis D. Reynolds Chicago Review Press, 814 N. Franklin St., Chicago IL 60610 ISBN 1-55652-193-6 One of the best guides to inventions and inventing by an inventor with a background in corporate and private invention, consulting and teaching. As much a book on how to invent as it is on patenting, licensing, and so on. Has many examples of inventions and inventors, good and bad, valuable and silly.
The same inventor/author, with Ronald Weingartner, has a book entitled "The Toy And Game Inventor's Handbook: Everything You Need To Know To Pitch, License And Cash-In On Your Ideas". Again, we haven't read it, but if it's as good as the previous book it's worth looking at.
Haven't actually read them, but these books seem like they could be interesting:
