5.0 out of 5 stars Theory of Constraints for retail
This is one of Eli Goldratt's best books. It's a very fast read (the co-authors write for TV and movies)and much thinner than his other books. That doesn't mean it's lightweight though; the story very clearly articulates how to use TOC thinking in retail ... and how to make loads more money. I enjoyed this book.

BTW: if you are a TOC expert then you may already...

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not
But this less than widely known writer has produced some real business gems wrapped up in a more traditional novel style - good reading ; but give yourself more time than a " regular" business book

This review is from: Isn't It Obvious? (Paperback)
This is one of Eli Goldratt's best books. It's a very fast read (the co-authors write for TV and movies)and much thinner than his other books. That doesn't mean it's lightweight though; the story very clearly articulates how to use TOC thinking in retail ... and how to make loads more money. I enjoyed this book.

BTW: if you are a TOC expert then you may already be familiar with the retail solution. This book isn't really written for you. It's written primarily for people working within retail who have maybe heard of TOC but haven't seen the retail/distribution/replenishment solution in Goldratt's other books like INL, NBNS, and The Choice. If you are an expert then search for the interview with Eli Goldratt about this book on the tocthinkers website where he talks about the book's more subtle themes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to Replenishment, 11 Nov 2011

This review is from: Isn't It Obvious? (Paperback)
True to Goldratt, this book is an `informative novel', detailing the issues and solutions faced by a retailer in the US.
I would consider it an interesting read for anyone that is new to Planning and Fulfillment in retail as it slowly guides the reader through the concept of Replenishment... That's it though.... As such, I would not recommend it to anyone that might hope for a deeper understanding or revelation. I read the book in 3 hrs and consider it a `fun' read, with very little value.
