This legendary book was first published in English in 1990. It has been re-translated and extensively revised, including material not found in the original translation. It is Altshuller's most popular book in Russia on how to become an inventor, and how to solve technical problems. The translator, Lev Shulyak, is himself an accomplished inventor, engineer and TRIZ expert.

From the Publisher:

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, translator of this book, taught the first U.S. TRIZ course. This edition has recently been translated into Japanese, Chinese and Spanish.

From the Inside Flap:

"This is an astonishing piece of work. It not only suggests and explains many effective thinking strategies for inventing, it introduces many resources like physics, chemistry and geometry as tools for solving invention problems and for predicting solutions for problems as yet unrecognized! "In addition, it organizes into a coherent theory a great many of the ways a thinker can develop skill in approaching a problem where there is "no answer" -- where invention is necessary. "And, to put the frosting on the cake, all of this is presented by inviting the reader to learn be doing. The author presents a marvelous variety of real problems where an invention is needed, and asks the reader to use one or another of the TRIZ techniques to invent a solution. "The method is based on a study of thousands of inventions and provides many general principles for reducing a problem to its essentials, reexamining it with fresh eyes, and guiding the would-be inventor to specific areas of technology that are likely to help. "I know of no other approach to inventing that offers such a rich arsenal of both practical and imaginative thinking tools. "In a word, TRIZ is a treasure." Sincerly, George M. Prince, Co-founder of Synectics, Inc.
