Profit First is awesome but this book helps with the specifics of implementation within a construction business which is the only thing missing in PF. Well worth it but I would read PF too as it helps drive home the fundamentals.

Would you like to have better solutions to your problems? Struggling to understand why things went wrong when you did everything right? The Art of Thinking in Systems can help you with these problems. You think systems thinking is for politicians, and powerful CEO's? Let me tell you this: a small business is a system, your class at school is a system, your family is a system. You are the element of larger systems - your town, your country, the world. These systems have a different dynamic. The more you know about their nature, the more optimal solutions you'll find to problems.

A very short book that doesn't give much insight into how to think in systems. It just says that you should think in systems. At least, that was my takeaway. I didn't feel any better off after listening to it.
