More About the Author

Eli Goldratt is an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he is, first and foremost, a thinker who provokes others to think. Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and "a slayer of sacred cows," Dr. Goldratt exhorts his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision.

He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and his Masters of Science, and Doctorate of Philosophy from Bar-Ilan University. In addition to his pioneering work in Business Management and education, he holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors

I've been a big admirer of Dr. Goldratt ever since I had to read The Goal in business school; I'm amazed how often his ideas pop up in the workplace, and how many applications they continue to have in a wide variety of settings. As much as I consider The Goal one of the most important books I've ever read, however, I must admit its fictional format has made it a little tricky to refer back to or to recommend to others.

That's why I'm delighted to hear Dr. Goldratt talk about his ideas in such a straightforward manner in Beyond the Goal. Instead of being another business novel, this is a far more conventional presentation of his philosophy-a great way to answer some of the questions I've had since reading The Goal. If you're familiar with Dr. Goldratt's work, Beyond the Goal will help you sharpen your understanding and put it to use. And if you've never read The Goal, this is a great introduction to one of the most influential business theories of our time.

This is a must-listen for any business listener!

In the goal we saw that there was a light at the end of the tunnel, or a bright blue sky above the "dark clouds of reality". Yet, I fully agree with those that have said that the explanations on TOC are clearer on the works of Dr. Goldratt's disciples.

But then you listen to this wonderful work and then you understand the philosophy behind TOC. He is inquisitive on the current reality to the point where you have to think hard, again and again to see the real constrains come about. No, its not phylosophy of science, because when you are just discerning through the clouds of reality, he hits you with the "show me the money!?!?", why are we even thinking this way if we are not going to get the benefits??!! and Im only in cd number 3 !!!

For those of you who have had some exposure to TOC and believe it can make a difference, I would recommended this cd book.

This is my first, but won't be my last, experience with Coach in a Box. Dr. G. is in his usual form (obviously speaking to a live audience) but this material, in this form, is probably not for those uninitiated to TOC. An outstanding supplement to William Dettmer's Systems book on TOC.

This audio book is not a story, but still compelling as Goldratt walks your through his thinking processes. Very enjoyable to listen to.

Reading the other comments it seems like I have a different product.
Beyond the Goal, at least my version, sounds like 8 class lectures.
Though the contents are interesting it's hard to follow along with only the audio and not have the visual support at your fingertips as well. The topics are interesting. The first chapter which went into the origins of MRP and evolution of ERP was fascinating but from there the topics were less engaging. I also found the hystrionic lecturing style a bit tiring. There were many tantalizing ideas but I didn't get enough meat to really dig in and hold onto much except the first chapter on origins of MRP and ERP. Some of the stories were a bit drawn out for a small point like physicist and simplicity and other points were just reference without enough to explain them For example Rope, Buffer , Drum was mentioned but without previously knowing and reading about it there wasn't enough for someone to grasp the concept.
I would really feather have had this material written out. Wishing there was a good academic book on TOC and the related subjects. Interested in recommendations.

Implementing Dr Goldratt's ideas will more than pay for this set of CD's.
He does allude to several slides or visual presentations that cannot be seen.
Over the quality is excellent.

I've read most everything by Goldratt (and others including Dettmer, Leach and Scheinkopf) and listened to many of his talks. Beyond the Goal is the best by far. Not only does he bring together all his thoughts from all his previous works but he takes them to a deeper level. If you consider yourself a systems thinker this is a must for your listening library.
