Worth Its Weight in Gold . . . . 13. August 2007
Von Jim Maxwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I stumbled across this book in a bookstore in 1971, shortly after it was initially published. It has been, and continues to be, one of the most important books I have ever read.

It is true that the UT is a tremendous aid in unlocking a creative spirit necessary to various design problem situations. But the real power of the book is to be found when it is applied to all aspects of one's life in general. This is due to the fact that, for those more philosophically minded, The Universal Traveler method embodies a "moderate realist" approach to reality. In the process of solving problems, or improving situations as Koberg and Bagnall term it, you can make tremendous discoveries regarding both the structure of reality and, most important, the character of your self.

Should you choose to purchase and use this book, I would like to offer you some advice: read the book twice and then use it exactly as Koberg and Bagnall suggest. Start with small and limited projects and develop your understanding of the method before you move on to bigger and more complex ones. ** You will only unlock the power of this work by using the method. "" And, lastly, I would highly recommend you find one of the early editions, 1971 to 1976. There was a magic in the early work that seems to have been lost in the more "improved" editions.

I would like to thank publicly both Don Koberg and Jim Bagnall for having written this book. I can state without hesitation that it ranks among the top 10 books I have ever read. I use the UT process/method daily. As I have said over the years to the countless people to whom I have recommended this book, " . . . it is worth its weight in gold."

Happy Traveling!

It's good to see the original version again. 25. Januar 2007
Von Designer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was introduced to the Universal Traveler while studying architecture during the 1970's. Over the past thirty years this book has pulled me out of creative ruts on numerous occasions. Whenever you become become bogged down during a design problem, take your mind off the issues and flip through the Univeral Traveler. The Traveler will re-equip you with fresh ideas to redefine your problem or question your approach. When you put the book down, you will be back on your design journey with renewed energy. I highly recommend this book.

Literally Life Changing 28. September 2011
Von Michael Dougherty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I rate this in the top 3 books I have ever read. I ran across this as graduate assistant and taught problem solving class structured around it. The design process it teaches underpins all human endeavors. It is useful to think of everything in our culture as a design, i.e., a response to a problem, a solution. Our task in innovation is to manage cycles of creation and destruction, the warp and woof of adaptation and innovation. In my mind, this book has no peer in empowering one to navigate this space.

If I controlled the world, design process would be taught right along side of reading, writing, math and science. Design is the overarching, integrative, unifying thought process needed to plow through the many muddles of our contemporary era. We don't need ideology, we need design methodology (for everyone).

Read this book and take it seriously. Apply it to your life and profession. It will open your eyes to new possibilities, and empower you to find an approach to difficult challenges. You will no longer think in nouns, but more in verbs. There are no solutions, only solutioning. Understanding this is liberating.

This book, if you really get it, is tranformational. When I taught these methods, the "A" students rebelled, wanting me to provide the same old fixed star answers so that they might report them back to me on tests. The smartest students, not "A" students, were ignited by the prospect of "answering", rather than being furnished the answers. Design process is the management of "answering", while understanding that the answers will never be perfect and must be tuned and tinkered along the way.

Become a life designer, not a solution subscriber. Get this book. It has been pivotal in my life. Perhaps the most important book I ever read. Teach it to your children and grandchildren. Use this design approach to manage change and find solutions. It works.

Book has helped me for almost 30 years 16. März 2007
Von Michael Gasperi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I first read this book in 1979. Since then I've successfully used many of its techniques in my job as a research engineer. Recently I was asked by an intern how I was able to think so creatively. I told her about the book and assumed it was long out of print. I'm delighted to see it is still available. I highly recommend this book. For me it has stood the test of time.

Just great - excellent 7. März 2009
Von Anonymous Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Universal Traveler is a must read for anyone that wants some assistance figuring out how to get from here to there in your life. I also recommend their sequel, Values Tech.

This was one of three books I sent my daughter off to college with. Universal Traveler, Nomadic Furniture and Champagne Living on a Beer Budget. She did pretty good, got through school fairly well and is off on her career.

I used this one in virtually every design and consulting project or creative process for over thirty years.
