The following article is a list of systematic innovation books – some dealing with TRIZ – that may be of use to you: Build a Library of Innovation Books.

A very useful list of books for all levels of interest in TRIZ and innovation. Thanks.

One suggestion would be to make it a click-able resource on The TRIZ Journal main page with regular updates, additions, etc.

It might be an idea to categorize this growing compilation under a few headings, for instance:

Innovation methodologies (incl. TRIZ)Creativity toolsInnovation managementInnovation educationPublic policy and reportsTechnology and the organisationetc.

I use “Hands on Systematic Innovation” (Mann) and highly recommend it as it is organized chapter by tool. For beginners, I also recommend, “And Suddenly the Inventor Appeared” (Altshuler) as well as another of his books, “The Inventive Algorithm”. Other good books are “TRIZ: The Right Solution at the Right Time” (Salamatov) which has hundreds of thoughtful examples as well as great coverage of modeling tools. Rantanen and Domb have a good beginning book, “Simplified TRIZ”. “Matrix 2003” is a good book re: the contradiction matrix.

You will be able to learn deep root of TRIZ, its theoretical background and how use all of theis to create your own tools and use all above for practical needs. It is domainÊfree tool. No 40 principles but real TRIZ for various real problems solving.

Hello, Nikolai:   I think that some of your reply got lost–please say where the reader should go to get the reading that you are suggesting.   Maybe the TETRIS textbook? for downloads in multiple languages.   This is very comprehensive, and I agree that it is domain-neutral, and that learning to build one's own tools is very important, and is a sign of developing skill in the method.   But it is a very difficult book for beginners.   Do you have another recommendation?
