This book introduces the "Theory of Constraints", or TOC, which is apparently big news in big business, especially manufacturing. It does so by telling a "business story", revealing the key concepts as a businessman, pressured both at home and work, figures out how to improve both thorough TOC. The principles are sound, if not earth-shaking, but I found the "reminder" of the basic business principles (e.g., figure out where the biggest constraint to your success is and focus there first) helpful. Incredibly obvious, but also incredibly helpful. I am sure a business guru could give a much more articulate and lengthy explanation of why this set of concepts is important (or not), but my simple version is that if you are in business, you should check this out.
