Larry did a great job at bringing this insight with practical applications on Project Management. I've used TOC and Lean concepts for a while, but Larry's book brings both in synch, in a very useful way.
Practitioners of CMMI, PMBOK and ISO will also benefit very much from those 8 Principles.
If you've read "Critical Chain Project Management" (also from Larry), this book is the next step.
Make no mistake, this is a great book. You can't help but feel Larry's great expertise in project management. He knows what he's talking about: behind unassuming binding lies deep knowledge (maybe even Profound Knowledge, if you're a fan of Deming). Study this book carefully, apply its lessons and you're sure to see great improvement in the execution of your projects.
Larry makes a mistake that is usual when people who know too much about a subject try to teach it: he crams too much knowledge into too few lines. The book sometimes gets hard to follow.
It's in great need of editing. Misspellings, bad grammar and even missing words happen often. And what looks like links at the beginning of each chapter makes one guess that this is an electronic document that was carelessly printed in order to become a paper book.
But what the heck, it's the content that counts, and this book is a winner. Great job, Larry!
I do not understand the people who rate this book higher than one star. I can't believe they are reading the same book I am. Makes we wonder who really wrote those reviews.
Amazon does us all a huge disservice when it allows "junk" like this to be sold to unsuspecting customers. This is obviously a self-published piece of work (I really wanted to use a different word than "work"), not professionally edited, by someone that didn't pay enough attention in High School English class. What a waste of time and money.
