5.0 out of 5 stars If you only have one TRIZ book, make it this one, 9 Dec. 2011
This review is from: TRIZ for Engineers: Enabling Inventive Problem Solving (Paperback)
Karen Gadd is an excellent teacher of TRIZ and a truly lovely person. She has proved with this book that she is also a talented author.

TRIZ "The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving" is in its first iteration, a toolkit for developing solutions to engineering problems. Its principles can be adapted to other areas of endeavour.

This book contains more TRIZ material in a more accessible style than any other TRIZ book I have encountered-and that is no small number. There are now two "Must Have" TRIZ books- this, and "And Suddenly the Inventor Appeared" which has, to be fair, always been there.

Karen's style is informal, and highly informative, light years away from the many unreadable dry as dust texts you will find, although there are other fine books out there. On an information per £ basis, this knocks all other TRIZ books into a cocked hat.

When you "get" TRIZ, it is something of a lightbulb moment. However you use the TRIZ methods, it will greatly improve your creativity. The style of this book should endear it to a wider audience, and its style should, for a practising Engineer, make it more appealing to your boss, helping to promulgate this valuable toolset still further.

There is much in the library of TRIZ books that is highly academic, and not necessarily what a practising engineer needs. At the end of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull", Fletcher is trying to exaplin the idea of the "Great Gull" to a group of student flyers. The response is "this doesn't sound like a rule for a loop."; well, the rule for a loop is probably what the Engineer wants- it's certainly what I want, and in this book, I believe you can find the rule for your loop quite readily.

In Karen's book, like her training courses, she takes the TRIZ theories, and gives them to you in ways you can apply immediately.

Highly recommended.
