The book is very hit-or-miss; as each chapter was written by a different person, and the readability varies immensely. Generally, it is bearable, but something of a slog.

It is insufficiently edited. I found at least one error every five pages or so, and this is on a simple reading; I'm not looking for them,they just leap out at me, distracting me from the text.

And the text really could use some distraction; One or two of the chapters are really just the vaguest of descriptions, while others go into the minutest details on points ...that don't actually tell you much about implementation. Every SINGLE term in the book is abbreviated, and the abbreviations are NOT always explicated.

What every chapter seems to have in common is multiple links to the website of its author. Now normally, that's a good thing. Normally it's GREAT when the author cares enough to keep adding to the book even after it goes to the publisher; adding tips and tricks, clearing up common misreadings that the readers ask about... Not here. Here, half the links are dead, one used to lead to a piece of their COMMERCIAL software (which, by the way, has moved), and the rest lead to the TOC official site, where one may buy e-copies of the individual chapters. Yes, that's right; The book has links... to buy another copy of this book.

Chapter 25 specifically sends you to that site a half-dozen times. "For an example of this completely vague thing I've just failed to describe, go to Appendix G, at http://<snip>". Following the link does not lead to Appendix G, but to another $6.95 version of THE STUPID CHAPTER I'M ALREADY READING, with no Appendix G to be found.

I'm used to textbooks being poorly written. I'm even used to TOC books being unevenly edited. But I'm NOT used to TOC books being confusingly written. After reading "The Goal" (multiple editions), "It's Not Luck", "Isn't It Obvious", "Necessary But Not Sufficient", "Critical Chain", "The Haystack Syndrome" AND "What Is This Thing Called The Theory of Constraints", I had a certain level of expectation. But that expectation, for the first time ever, was not met.

If you MUST check this out for completeness, get the much dreaded Chapter 25 online, as it is the only source I've seen for the Strategy and Tactics Tree, and then go back and reread It's Not Luck, taking careful notes. Flipping through this, it almost feels like Dr Goldratt would prefer you to do exactly that.

The Theory of Constraints Handbook is certainly not for the casual reader; rather this is a compilation of work by different authors, written for those who truly want a deeper understanding of the mechanics of T.O.C.

The T.O.C. Handbook would be better viewed as a series of text books compiled into a single binding; each section can actually be studied independently of other sections. At nearly 1200 pages, and with its depth of the material, this is certainly not light reading. Unfortunately, many of the chapters were not reader friendly and were rather difficult to get through; however stick with it and you will gain knowledge critical to the success of your business or your personal life.

To get the most from this book, each chapter should be studied with paper and pencil in hand, and treated as a course in itself.

One nice aspect of this book was the variety of different styles between authors. I have now found several authors who's books I would like to study as a result of reading this publication.

Theory of Constraints (TOC) have been around for over 30 years and it is quite incredible to see how the growth rate in it's applications has been accelerating rather than declining. This TOC Handbook is definitely proof of that. The extraordinary handbook consists of 38 chapters, each written by a leading TOC expert or TOC academic. It is really impressive to see how despite the diversity in authors, the editors were able to maintain consistency in the way each chapter is presented and illustrated. Typically most of the chapters cover the "Why Change?", "What to change?", "What to change to", and " How to cause the change?" of the topic it covers with many chapters providing details on how to overcome practical implementation challenges.

The introductory chapter by Dr Eli Goldratt, the creator of TOC, provides a fascinating description of the evolution of TOC, since it's first application to manufacturing in the late 1970's to today where it is being applied in an holistic way to achieve what Goldratt calls "Ever Flourishing" organizations. As a senior executive of a company and an avid follower and practitioner of TOC I couldn't wait for this book's release in June 2010. After reading all the chapters, I can honestly say all the chapters are worth a read but the ones that really stood out (readers can buy individual chapters as ebooks) include chapter 4 by Realization Technologies on "Getting durable results with Critical Chain - a field report", chapter 11 on "Supply Chain management the TOC way" by Amir Schragenheim, chapters 15 and 16 by Dr Alan Barnard on "Continuous improvement & Auditing the TOC way" and "Holistic TOC Implementation Case studies" which includes case studies from both the Public and Private sector (co-authored by Ray Immelman), Chapter 25 on "Thinking processes including S&T trees" by Lisa Scheinkopf, Chapter 27 on "TOC in Prisons" by Christina Cheng and Chapter 29 on "Theory of Constraints in Professional, Scientific and Technical Services" by John Ricketts.

I can definitely recommend this Handbook or at least to get a few of the individual chapters (great value at less than $6 ea) to both those that are new to Theory of Constraints and want to understand what it is and how it can be applied to many different organizations and subjects, but also for the more experienced TOC practitioner like me, who knows the more we learn about TOC, the wider our base and the faster and more effective the rate of our own learning, communication and implementation success.
