    Yes I read a textbook from beginning to end In that order Does inserting a Costanza uote make me less of a nerd for choosing to read a textbook? I had read assigned parts of this book during graduate school but many sections were new to meI have been unable to find any practical business books covering specifics of Ops Management and Supply Chain so I finally decided to just dig into this It's pretty dense but provided a good refresher on all the key concepts and provided a new perspective on many professional challenges I am facing

    I have read many books about supply chain but this one is different The approach and examples used in the book are very practical and useful to solve real problem out there The book is well structured It will be best companion on supply chain together with factory physics
