If you have already read other books by Dr. Goldratt, this is one to add to your collection and take with you for reading when time is short. It does not read as smoothly as do his other books, and at times I found myself reading a paragraph a second or third time because it was not initially clear whether it was Dr. Goldratt speaking, or Alex.

Still, this is a good book, and one I might compare with "Breakfast with Socrates" by Robert Rowland Smith. I make this comparison because it really takes a considerable amount of concentration and reflection of the material to fully grasp what it is that Dr. Goldratt is trying to say. Would I recommend this book? Yes, I think I would, but not as the first one to read by Dr. Goldratt, rather as one to read after understanding his other publications.

If only all of Goldratt's efforts were required reading in high school, the whole country would have learned to problem solve more effectively.

His keen ability to remove the staid layers of behavior that need to be set aside, in order to uncover fresh, successful approaches to all and everything, be it inventory control in a for-profit business or a improved means of preserving our ecology. Goldratt (the man with the odd last name) through his story telling challenges the reader to abandon prescribed methodologies in order to discover betterment.

He seems to be blessed with clarity of thought and an innate ability to distill content in order to identify core issues.

If you are not interested in reading through all of the detailed books by Goldratt then this is probably quite thought provoking, but if you have read his other books then I wouldn't bother.
