Kind of dry April 4, 2014

"The book, Operations Management 11th Edition, is very informative and detailed, providing a wealth of information on several business topics. The author provides very detailed analysis and evaluation. These topics are covered extensively and require a decent amount of concentration from the reader. The book examines several business aspects including economics and finance, as well as general business management. The practical aspects of running a business are also examined in some detail. I would recommend the book to anyone who is interested in a detailed and rigorous reading on management and business topics. I found the book to be interesting and the topics were readable and understandable."
