As a lean practitioner I honestly didn't find the book much useful to me.
Most of what the book is trying to say is already known by lean practitioners and industrial engineers.
The book is written well, but some chapters are not well informative.
I found the book very useful for accountant and financial folks because they usually have a very short-term thinking that obstacle the lean journey.
The book can be used as a guide to change the way the financial people are thinking and acting so they are turned to business partners and decision supporters.
The book is still worth reading.
