If you've read the Goldratt novels and want to study his techniques and tools in greater depth, this book does the job.
I've bought a number of non-fiction Theory of Constraints books, and wished I got this one first; there would have been very little need for any other, except perhaps Dettmer's 'Goldratt's Theory of Constraints', and Newbold's 'Project Management in the Fast Lane.'
APICS is doing the rest of us a great service with their TOC series, and this book is a must.

I recently finished reading the Thinking for a Change book and I am very impressed. I have now bought at least a half dozen copies and have started distributing them at work. This book is the most straightforward approach to actually beginning to apply the Thinking Processes that I have seen to date, and I have been doing a fair amount of reading on this over the past few months as my long term interest in TOC got revived six to eight months ago.
I have found this book and Thomas McMullen's book on the Theory of Constraints Management System to the be the best written of the latest crop of books to come out on this subject. Bill Dettmer's books provide much more detail, but Scheinkopf's stands out for its easy to follow examples and straightforward methodology.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in making more rapid progress toward their business or personal goals.

I found It's Not Luck by Eli Goldratt a frustrating read.

The Theory of Constraints Thinking Processes were clearly powerful tools for diagnosing problems and implementing solutions and taking TOC out of the factory floor and into the boardrooms.

But I found the tools abstract and confusing. Thinking For A Change solves this problem and gives the reader a solid understanding of the main tools and the confidence to have a go at using them.

That's the important thing - using the techniques because it's the only way to develop a deeper understanding of the ideas.

On the TOC listserv (subscribe-cmsig@lists.apics.org), John Gaulin recently wrote:
Just a quick note of thanks -- and congratulations -- for the great work that is "Thinking for a Change". (By the way, great title too!).
I am a recent Jonah, having completed the program in October at the Insititute. Your book takes a very different approach to teaching the TP and helped clear up alot of things.
Also, thanks for showing the way of a true helping Jonah by being so active on the net. You really live your beliefs and it is wonderful.
We too often take great effort and contributions for granted. I want you to know that yours is not (being taken for granted).
Sincerely, John Gaulin
