    1. Eliyahu M Goldratt was an educator, author, physicist, philosopher and business leader, but first and foremost, he was a thinker who provoked others to think Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and a slayer of sacred cows, he urged his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision.Dr Goldratt is best known as the father of the Theory of Constraints TOC , a process of ongoing improvement that identifies and leverages a system s constraints in order to achieve the system s goals He introduced TOC s underlying concepts in his business novel, The Goal A Process of Ongoing Improvement, which has been recognized as one of the best selling business books of all time First published in 1984, The Goal has been updated three times and sold than 7 million copies worldwide It has been translated into 35 languages.Heralded as a guru to industry by Fortune magazine and a genius by Business Week, Dr Goldratt continued to advance the TOC body of knowledge throughout his life, building on the Five Focusing Steps the process of ongoing improvement, known as POOGI with TOC derived tools such as Drum Bu er Rope, Critical Chain Project Management CCPM and the Thinking Processes He authored ten other TOC related books, including four business novels It s Not Luck the sequel to The Goal , Critical Chain, Necessary but Not Sufficient and Isn t It Obvious His last book, The Choice, was co authored by his daughter Efrat Ashlang Goldratt.Born in Israel on March 31, 1947, Dr Goldratt earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy from Bar Ilan University He is the founder of TOC for Education, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing TOC Thinking and TOC tools to teachers and their students, and Goldratt Consulting In addition to his pioneering work in business management and education, Dr Goldratt holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation to temperature sensors He died on June 11, 2011, at the age of 64.

    2. I really struggled finishing this book. The topic and theory of constraints was interesting; however, I found the sentences to contradict themselves often and things to be generally unclear. The section about the history of science which was used to provide more authority to the management theory being promoted was completely unnecessary and I believe inaccurate.I know try to use the principles put forth in the theory of constraints and have found them immensely helpful in organizing thoughts an [...]

    3. Controversial, interesting and useful book This book, forced my rethink my current understatement about first Dr. E. Goldratt book "The Goal" and all that I thought know about TOC and other management philosophies. After reading "Theory of constraints", now I understand a little bit more about TOC, TQM and JIT development, their similarities and differences, science purpose and development in general, dippendant and indippendant variables, TOC tools and psychological challenges in TOC implementa [...]

    4. Has a few nuggets of Goldratt's wisdom, but the version that I read was so rife with punctuation errors and run-on sentences, not to mention a general lack of cohesion, that I find it hard to recommend. Read The Goal instead.

    5. Goldratt's "Theory of Constraints" bears some real gems, like diving deeper into the Socratic approach and the Evaporating Clouds method, or by elaborating a bit more on the psychology of change per se. Nevertheless, I did not overly enjoy the read, which is both due to the unstructured presentation and the TOC sales show covering nearly the second half of this edition. I heavily doubt this book would've been of any use for me at all if I hadn't read The Goal beforehand, as I always had the feel [...]

    6. This book was quite fascinating NOT because of the theory of constraints, but because Goldratt tells us WHY his book The Goal was so successful. It was so incredibly successful not because the theory of constraints makes sense, but because he used a particular approach to the Socratic Method of Teaching which I've never encountered. I read this book 1 year+ since reading The Goal, but only whilst reading this did it dawn on me that tremendous educational power the method used has. It is almost a [...]

    7. I heard this book on CD, instead of reading it. The book explained many concepts that I was very unfamiliar with. Goldratt presents the material by asking questions and giving examples. He becomes quite animated at times. Overall, it gives a much greater understanding of the several constraints that surround business decisions. This should be mandatory reading for all those executives who are prone to making quick calls without considering all the ramifications to the organization as a whole.

    8. A good complement to The Goal, but assumed you've already read that one. Some parts read like a sales pitch for the Goldratt Institute. Thought provoking. Me very time I read Goldratt I find something new I can apply at work - so I keep reading.

    9. The book is dictated and typed out, which is apparent from the lack of structure in it. It is mostly a marketing thing about why theory of constraints is so great. Better not buy this one, but start with 'the goal' or a course in Theory of Constraints.

    10. This is another difficult yet enlightening read. A paradigm shift from thinking that inventory is good and long runs of a product (i.e. lack of turns) is efficient. Made my bookkeeping classes become unimportant, and detrimental in todays manufacturing processes.

    11. Definitely a classic, but one I didn't read until recently, which is too bad. Theory of Constraints can be applied well outside of manufacturing to nearly anything that is process oriented.

    12. My professor in Management Accounting class suggested me to read this. I found out it was very good. Taste like a business book, but, very enjoyable.

    13. A couple interesting points and methods but the writing was terrible. Too many run-ons, punctuation errors, and unnecessary content.
