"This text is an excellent addition to the TRIZ literature. As we continue to introduce TRIZ to the Engineering Community at International Truck and Engine Corporation, this is the book that I will use. This is one of the best books that I have encountered to date on TRIZ." Dr. James Bradley, TRIZ Journal
