4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading., 18 Dec 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Theory of Constraints and How it Should be Implemented (Hardcover)
While much of this book is simply a review of concepts he has introduced in his novels, he does introduce a few new concepts that make reading the book well worth the effort. In particular, the last chapter brings together the concepts of JIT, TQM, TOC, and several others into a cohesive whole that I have not seen anywhere else. It was worth reading the entire book just for the last chapter.
I felt the non-fiction format allowed him to be more explicit about his ideas than in his novels. He uses a lot of examples from his seminars to illustrate key learning points, which I thought was helpful to illustrate the learning process he recommends his readers go through. I didn't get the impression he was simply trying to sell more seminar tickets.
Since I read this shortly after reading The Goal, I felt I learned a great deal about the Theory of Constraints and its background. He elaborates on many of these concepts in later books, so you probably won't learn much more here if you have read many of his other books. I would still recommend reading this book just to get a more complete picture of the strengths and especially the pitfalls of the Theory of Constraints.
