Critical Chain, a gripping past-packed business novel, does for Project Management what Eli Goldratt's other novels have done for Production and Marketing. Dr. Goldratt's books have transformed the thinking and actions of management throughout the world. If you have read The Goal and Goal II you will want to read Critical Chain because you understand how Eli Goldratt's
books can change how you think about business. If you have not read the Goal and Goal II, this book will introduce you to Dr. Goldratt's Thinking Processes, and you will understand why Fortune Magazine calls his - A Guru to Industry and Business Week describes him as a genius.
The difference between Goldratt and the new age business authors, I guess comes down to one fundamental element. Goldratt is simply amazing and the others are amazingly simplistic, Assembly.
