Patents Continued...

So, the book "Patent it Yourself" by David Pressman has been recommended to me by a handful of people already, so I have purchased it, and have recently received it. I'll consider that as a small drop in the bucket of spending towards being an Entrepreneur. I was able to buy the book online for around $30. Another book recommended to me is "Patent Pending in 24 hours", its about provisional patents, I'll wait a bit until I buy that one. Finding a lawyer may still be my 'best' option, but I am still doing more of a patent search before I throw half my savings into a patent lawyer. (ouch.. it pains me to even think of it)

I'm wondering if its really worth it at this point to use as a search engine. The site is divided into two, pre and post 1976, so any work you do, you basically have to do it twice. I'm thinking of sticking with, and then going to as needed. Any advice there?

File management has been getting harder and harder for me. I keep on doing research and creating documents to store my progress, and then I am left with too many documents with scattered information. And transferring between my laptop and desktop leaves me even more confused. Eventually I hope to come across a better system for this.
