5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource- A Real Must For Me 7 Oct 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant. I got this book from the library then ran straight to my computer and bought it. Generally clear explanations of complex concepts this book offers the reader a first insight into a range of vital topics from calculating EOQ to understanding decision making. Please don't expect in depth examination of topics- it is a first swipe through. However, this book should be more than enough for most people.
