Format: Paperback
While this book was built up to be a 'one size fits all' answer to the gray areas of Logistical supply chain management I was severely underwhelmed with the lack of content regarding the lean approach to supply chain management!!!!

If you have any type of higher educational work to do regarding the lean aproach to supply chain management, and you are reliant on this book, my PERSONAL view would be to search for an alternative text!
