"Operations and Supply Chain management is a book centered around the growing field of logistics. If your professor requires this book in your class, be warned- it's a heavy read. As long as you have a great professor to assist you in understanding the finer points this book attempts to get across, you'll do fine. There are some neat additions to the book that include videos and so on. I felt these came off a little lackluster and didn't leave me with the educational impression I had originally hoped. The price tag was high, but if it is amongst your required purchase list, rest easy in knowing it's there for a reason. All in all, I give this book a thumbs up."
