"A survey of the reading habits of managers found that though they buy books by the likes of Tom Peters for display purposes, the one management book they have actually read from cover to cover is The Goal." -- The Economist
"Anybody who considers himself a manager should rush out, buy and devour this book immediately. If you are the only one in your place to have read it, your progress along the path to the top may suddenly accelerate...one of the most outstanding business books I have ever encountered." --Punch Magazine
"Like Mrs. Fields and her cookies, The Goal was too tasty to remain obscure. Companies began buying big batches and management schools included it in their curriculums." --Fortune Magazine
"This theory provided a persuasive solution for factories struggling with production delays and low revenues." --Harvard Business Review

All in all, if you do not have the time to read the book, and are on the road alot, this is a very good substitute. I prefer the information straight-forward, but from the reviews (CD 10 and 11) it sounds like many readers actually enjoyed the story. I however, did not find it enjoyable.
Alex, the protagonist, starts the valuable stuff on Chapter 4, so if you are like me, you might want to skip ahead. From there, its hard to say which Chapters are the most valuable because he (Alex) does go back and forth about "The Goal" and the story of the book.
I don't mean to offend anyone, just giving my candid opinion.
Best of luck,
This book introduced the Theory of Constraints to the world of business and has made its way to B-Schools as a textbook. Eliyahu Goldratt has done an excellent job in explaining his theory using a novel-style writing. It is a story of a struggling plant manager to improve his plant's performance and save it from closure. The expert in this story provoked the main character to "derive his solutions by supplying the question marks instead of exclamation marks".
Recommended read for every professional in manufacturing.
