Inside This Book(Learn More)
The objective of this chapter is to provide you with a basic understanding of the nature of inventory as both a tangible, physical item actually kept within the facility ("real life" or "shelf count") and as an intangible item existing within the company's records ("paper life" or record count"). Read the first page

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
On the recommendations side, the author left the topic of safety and occupational health out of the book. It would be good to include this topic in the following edition.
The author is well versed in theories while highly experienced in practical application. The book provides succinct surveys of methods of inventory management and each's pros and cons, and also how pitfalls in areas of business management either directly or indirectly related to inventory management can lead to various persistent problems. It views inventory as an integral part of a business and aims to help the reader make the business better and stronger as a whole through improved inventory management.
As the title indicates, this book is only about the "essentials," so the needs of very large (global in scale) or very complex (like Amazon) operations are not covered, but the conceptual basics should be universally applicable.
Note: If you don't own a Kindle reader and intends to read the book on a computer, the diagrams would be too small for your eyes and impossible to read. But given that the diagrams are few and none too essential, it shouldn't amount to more than a nuisance.
I had written to Amazon's customer service and the respondent said they're taking the Kindle version off the shelf until the publisher fixes it. So please write in again to badger them if you're buying the book a few months later than I and still find the same problem in the book.
* VERY Readable with GREAT Examples, Figures, Illustrations and Pictures
* GREAT introductory book
What is only so-so:
* Some topics are a LITTLE dated, but that happens in a rapidly changing technological world!
* Concise, Well Written, Straight Forward, Easy to Understand, GREAT Examples
* This is a great INTRODUCTORY Book. You may have to move on to other texts for more in-depth explanations on specific topics
