Global Logistics Strategies: Delivering the Goods by John Manners-Bell

This book is a excellent guide to the sometimes arcane world of logistics and supply chain management. The author has that rare ability to explain complex topics in an engaging and accessible way.

This book is a great read and filled with the authors experiences. It provides a useful insight into what makes an entrepreneur and why we need more of them in the UK. Some of the sections covering how the world is transitioning from a post industrial society into one based on knowledge, are particularly interesting and for my money, (based on my own experience) pretty accurate.

If you are looking for a primer as to what it takes to build a company, this is the book. It's not too heavy (or too long), but does an excellent job describing the landscape (or countryside) you will encounter. Written by someone who lives there, works there and can explain it clearly.
