I have become a real fan of Supply Chain and Logistics Management Made Easy. Certainly, nothing in life is easy, but Paul Myerson’s new book has made the field more attractive and popular.”

     –Richard A. Lancioni, Professor of Marketing and Supply Chain Management, Fox School of Business & Management, Temple University

     

    “Is it possible to take a discipline that involves millions of moving things, people, and processes and make it easy? Paul has taken the complex subject of supply chain and delivered a thorough and easy-to-understand review of all its elements. For the business student, the book provides a comprehensive view of the supply chain and serves as an effective introduction to the discipline and as an effective teaching tool. For the supply chain expert, this book is an excellent tool for reflection on all things supply chain. Each section brings back thoughts of the challenges the accomplished supply chain leader has faced.

This book captures all the elements. A complete professional reference. An easy read that teaches.”
