A breakthrough solution is exposed when some unexpected events force Caroline and Paul, a married couple working for their family’s retail business, to make a few small changes in the way things are done. A solution that propels the family’s regional chain of stores into a very profitable, rapidly growing, international enterprise. If there is a hint of Jonah, from The Goal, reappearing in this novel, it is Henry, the soon-to-retire president and majority owner of the company who logically states that, “if you do not deal directly with the core problem, don’t expect significant improvement.” Eli Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints is woven throughout this book but answers are not handed to you. The listener, along with the characters in the book, work through the process together to discover solutions.

This book does for retailing what Goldratt’s international bestseller The Goal did for manufacturing. The elegant but simple solutions give the listener that sensation that followers love about Goldratt: “Ah-ha! Now I get it!” And that’s when Goldratt says, “Isn’t It Obvious?”

About the Author

Eliyahu M. Goldratt (1947–2011) was an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he was, first and foremost, a thinker who provoked others to think. Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and “a slayer of sacred cows,” Dr. Goldratt exhorted his audience to examine and reassess their business practices with a fresh, new vision. In addition to his pioneering work in business management and education, he held patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation and temperature sensors.
