This is one of the most enjoyable business books I’ve read. And technically it isn’t a business book at all. It’s actually a novel about a plant manager who has 90 days to make a dramatic turnaround in both his work and his marriage (both of which are going down in flames).
Alex (the main character) runs into one of his old professors who helps to guide him to the new way of thinking that can save both his plant and his relationship. And the messages Alex learns from that professor make up the foundations for author Eli Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints.
