Format: Paperback
This was by far the most entertaining textbook I used this semester. It had a lot of humor, which I appreciated, studying a 150 dollar accounting book at the same time. I liked how the book gave examples like NFL quarterback productivity, which made sense.

After reading the book, I feel that the author got short of what I was expecting. The book is just not good enought for what I was looking for. My experience is that the best way to acquire knowledge in this area is to talk to real Operations Managers with a lot of years of experience and write another good book.
