OriginEdit

Gordon Gould was an American scientist credited with developing modern laser theory. Due to his lack of knowledge of patent law, he incorrectly assumed that his ideas could not be patented until he had built an actual laser. He failed to create his own working model of the laser and was beaten to the punch by Theodore H. Maimon. He spent the next thirty years fighting legal battles for a share of the profits from lasers. He was finally awarded his dues in the 1980s.

EffectsEdit

The book will give any reader a great understanding of science. This will inspire the user to make great breakthroughs in any scientific field. The caveat is that the user will not profit from his/her inventions immediately. Any money or accolades earned will not be received by the user until some time has passed, sometimes years.

CollectionEdit

Hugo took a peek at the notebook one day. He would later come up with one of aisle neutralizing stations. The regents would only congratulate him two years later.
