A milestone in the development of the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ), this book is the result of over twenty years of research and analysis. Altshuller details TRIZ's problem solving algorythm (ARIZ) that can produce innovation of the highest order. Saturated with profound thoughts, insights, and examples, this book is regarded by many as Altshuller's magnum opus, his handbook for a creative and technological revolution.
TRIZ (the Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) was developed by this book's author, Genrich Altshuller. Studied and respected around the world, TRIZ shows that technical systems evolve following predictable patterns. Consequently, inventiveness can be learned by anyone. Developed underground by Russian scientists, TRIZ has validated itself by solving thousands of difficult technical problems. Over 60,000 engineers world-wide are trained in TRIZ. In 1984, Lev Shulyak, co-translator of this book, taught the first U.S. TRIZ course.
From my perspective as an educator/science graduate, it would seem to be an excellent book for any engineer. It describes a useful and practical process for solving complex problems in a systematic way. HAs many case studies that are interesting to the laymen too.
For the rest of us, well not as useful. How to fix the wife, mend the kids, retire the boss are not covered.
In general, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about problem-solving and how our minds work when solving challenging problems. While more focused on using TRIZ to solve problems within engineering and technical fields, I think that anyone can learn from reading this book. It tells the story of TRIZ in a way that is clear and easy to understand, while still including enough technical depth that the reader can have a good idea of how to start using the methodology going forward.
