Editorial Reviews

Business Week
Goldratt’s system, in essence, forces production managers and workers alike to coordinate their work-with an underlying principle in mind: that ‘bottlenecks’…are what ultimately constrain the manufacturing environment.
Economist
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.
Fortune 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.
Harvard Business Review
This theory provided a persuasive solution for factories struggling with production delays and low revenues.
Punch Magazine
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.
Success Magazine
Goal readers are now doing the best work of their lives.

Alex Rogo manages a failing manufacturing plant, and his marriage is on shaky ground due to his long work hours. When his district manager tells him that profits must increase or the plant will be closed, Alex realizes he needs help. He turns to Jonah, a former professor, whom Alex discovers is now a management consultant (although Jonah's field is physics). With the help of the enigmatic Jonah and the plant staff, Alex turns the plant around while at the same time abandoning many management principles he previously thought were ironclad. This multivoiced presentation is lively and interesting and offers food for thought for managers in any field. The performances are natural and unaffected, with sound effects to enhance the illusion of reality. Although it is a novel, this title is more appropriate for business collections.-- Melody A. Moxley, Rowan P.L., Salisbury, N.C.
