By A Customer on April 5 1999
This book failed to capture the essence behind the workings of Toyota. Whether it was through poor research or a simple lack of understanding this book should be avoided at all costs.

Lack of information, I didn't find what I was looking, how to calculate KANBAN.

Lean Help Oct. 24 2008
By Stephen H. Donnelly - Published on Amazon.com
My boss recommended the book to me as an introdution to lean thinking several years ago. I found it dry. This time through I got more out of it because we have been implementing and teaching lean for several years and experience has made the details of the book are more understandable and helpful. My parents also seem much smarter these days. I must be getting old.
A good book on TPS June 3 2012
By Todor NN - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It gives a lot of insides of TPS and the reasons led to its development. Also makes the reader think and to answer questions in a provocative way. Weakness is sometimes the structure due to which it is a better choice for a person who is not a beginner with lean/TPS.
Review from lean manufacturing junction Jan. 27 2009
By James Paul Ledingham - Published on Amazon.com
This is a good book for helping people understand the basic concepts of TPS (Lean manufacturing). It doesn't go into detail about how to implement, but it is an easy to read, simple to follow book about the TPS fundamentals.

By George Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
The book is eye opening. Many of the processes described can be applied to any business as a management philosophy. Managers must look for improvement or face stiff competition from those who don't.
A must book if you are on a lean Journey!! July 17 2009
By S. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
These are the real roots of the Toyota production system.
If you want to implement JIT in your operation you must have this book.
Very clear and detailed examples of how TPS works.
Great book!!
