3.0 out of 5 stars I expected more April 21, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is very redundant and has numerous grammar errors. The same material could have been delivered with 60% less pages. This is quite a disappointment considering it's a 5th edition textbook.

The book was pretty user friendly. No real complaints about it. It's not the most interesting subject but the writer did manage to make it quite readable and easy to study.

I bought this book for my college class and found it so valuable and full of good info that I kept it instead of trading in. Good general book to reference if you work in supply chain.
