It does justice to many areas of TRIZ that just aren't covered in the depth I have found elsewhere. In reviewing this book I really enjoyed the templates that showed the flow of where and when to use the different tools, again not something that I've seen covered in other TRIZ books in such an easy to use format. I really liked the flow chart, the TRIZICS roadmap, it is better than any other TRIZ tool use roadmap that I've seen publicly presented.
No other book on TRIZ does this to near the degree that you'll find in this book. The descriptions that Mr. Cameron has put in here really add granularity where it is needed in a comprehensive and useful manner.
I can't recommend this book high enough to instructors, teachers, students, whether they be a beginner or advanced.
I know what you're asking, you want to know what's in it for you, right? I delayed bothering with TRIZ many times in the past because no one could really explain it. So, if you want to learn TRIZ or want to learn new ways to think about it, you'll get what you're looking for right here. TRIZICS has almost 400 pages packed top to bottom with mental challenges. You could read this book every day for a year and never stop learning new things. And since the only way to figure this stuff out is to use it, you might also have a very productive year.
Of course, TRIZ is a pretty complicated system. I really don't get the impression that many people, scholastic or professional, really know how to explain and implement it. And while TRIZICS explains it well and teaches you how to implement it, you still have to think a lot and try it out a lot in order to really learn anything at all.
Is it worth it? As TRIZICS is a extremely comprehensive problem solving method that makes complicated things possible (although not necessarily less complicated) I would say yes, and recommend you buy and use this book. The information is great and the design of that information is great also, which seems lost on anyone else who tries to explain this stuff. TRIZICS is the only book you'll ever need on TRIZ, so get it already!
This book was a revelation - it made the subject straightforward, logical and readable. It presents a clear explaination of the various tools of TRIZ and where they might be applied.
Even though it is essentially a technical problem solving process, I could not recommend this highly enough to non-technical people involved in routine, day-to-day problem solving as part of their job. A technical background is not needed to understand and apply the techniques in full, as they are explained in such a clear, logical manner.

When I started to learn about TRIZ, it was so difficult to understand which tool apply for a specific situation. However, Cameron Gordon made an extraordinary job because he organized the TRIZ tools and non-TRIZ tools in a way that you can select the right tools for a specific problem or situation.
For the experienced TRIZ users, they will found so interesting because TRIZICS is part of the evolution of the TRIZ tool.
This book is highly recommended.
