As an energy consultant I am constantly required to solve complex problems for the top US energy companies. I have never found a book more useful, practical, and ultimately more valuable than this book. Although the concepts are very well developed and easy to understand, unless your interested in making tons of money solving optimization problems this book is not for you. In short, this is my favorite book of all time.

This textbook was required for my Management Science class. I opened it once. Perhaps this was the fault of my professor, since our primary method of solving calculations were by hand rather than by Excel. Considering this textbook explained all concepts using Excel spreadsheets, it was useless and a waste of $100. The typefont was too small and compact - any type of interesting graphical layout or text were 1 in every 100 pages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
