This books puts me to sleep!
on 3 February 2009
As a newcomer to Lean I found this book to be of little use. For those who already know and understand the topics it may serve as a useful reference but I would advise novices to avoid it. I got as far as page 20 before giving up!
The writing style is labourious and poorly edited. Pages of text are wasted on concepts that could be better explained with a single picture or diagram. Not very Lean!
The author also assumes the reader has a certain amount of prior knowledge as he makes no attempt to explain some of the terminology, buzz words and acronyms used throughout.
I've slapped a big red tag on it and thrown it in the bin!
