1.0 out of 5 stars A very amateur novel of zero educational value, 13 April 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement (Paperback)
I hoped this book would shed light on the subjects it promises to explain, especially considering its hype and glowing reviews.

Instead I received a very amateur novel that makes continual promises and delivers nothing of actual substance. One question merely leads to another in such a way I am left with the impression this book is simply a cash cow to hook readers into purchasing more books and courses by the author.

I have spent a few years collecting a nice bookshelf of titles regarding manufacturing and processes and I can confidently say; if you want to get straight to the point, read Taiichi Ohno - a grand master with real world credentials - and secondly Edwards Deming.

Interesting comment. A lot of people (myself included) have found the book contains just enough detail, but not too much, to enable them to manage their businesses (factories, hospitals, IT departments ...) better.

Perhaps you just prefer more "how to" books. If that's the case why not read "The Race", also co-authored by Goldratt. It's more detailed. You can pick up a copy second-hand for a few pounds.
