For those who sincerely think HOW to innovate
Though you might to see a review of TRIZICS, I saw for the first time today. Should TRIZ be taught at university?
“As an innovation professional, I have headed R&D departments, produced patents, and invented my share of stuff. I have participated in many brain-storming, lateral thinking, and problem solution courses. I am not given to hyperbole: Cameron’s book – a comprehensive guide to invention and problem solution – is the best I have ever seen, bar none. Its contents will easily support a full year course in invention/knowledge creation at the uni-versity level. A rich source of information, it will require careful study, read-ing, and re-reading to master its contents. However, it is worthy of the effort. TRIZICS is the new quintessential resource for creative problem solv-ing and invention.” - Joe Colannino

Sorry, I think this is the correct link
I got this one emailed below also. The reviews are very good.
Hello Gordon - I fully agree with the reviewer's comments - Your book is not only the most lucid and informative book on TRIZ I have read. Most importantly it clarifies when and when not to use the TRIZ methods in a way that is clear and obvious immediately after reading but must have taken you years of groping with the various methods to formulate.
You achieve this clarity by first categorising problems into 4 types and I believe this critical original thinking of problem categorisation is as simple but yet as profound as Deming's type I and Type II causes or Ohno's 7 wastes. I mightn't read Deming or Ohno every day but every time I'm faced with a tricky problem their key insights are at the core of my thinking approach and I have now added your 4 problem types to this profound core.
Congratulations on producing a guide that anyone can follow with a bit of effort to scale the TRIZ Everest to Base Camp in a week and all the way to the summit with the assurance of having a Sherpa guide and provided they are prepared to put in the necessary work.
