Robert Malone uses his deep knowledge of modern worldwide logistics to help you understand what has happened to your supply chain. He analyzes the issues that businesses face and uses corporate examples to illustrate his points. He presents the material within each chapter as a series of short, two or three paragraph articles. This contributes to a somewhat impressionistic style, but getAbstract finds that the overall effect is quite interesting and informative. If you need to get a handle on the modern supply chain and the logistics it entails, this is a useful take on the subject.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Most books on supply chain management get lost in the grimble of laborious case studies and details of 'how to,' and lack a larger perspective. This book provides the necessary big picture, connects many historical dots, and answers some key questions: How did logistics and supply chain management develop? What role does it play in creating organizational wealth? How is automation changing how things work on a global scale? What does operational innovation really look like? How do you wrestle the issue of complex supply chain logistics to the ground? Given that everyone needs to think about the delivery of what they do on a daily basis--how to get the right thing to the right person in the right form with the right quality at the right price--Chain Reaction is an indispensable guide. What's nice is that the chapters are delivered in nuggets...that allows you to start and stop without a loss of continuity, and at the same time provokes and engages your brain, because you constantly are asking yourself: how does this relate to the last part? How does this fit with that? The end result is that you remember and understand more because you're making those connections yourself without being spoon-fed.Was this review helpful?
