Using the unique business-novel format, It's Not Luck continues the story of The Goal protagonist Alex Rogo as he navigates a new set of challenges facing the now over-diversified and under-profitable UniCo, where he has risen to the rank of division manager.
With an engaging voice and dynamic plot, Goldratt shows how to apply his Theory of Constraints (TOC) to achieve ongoing improvement in sales and marketing, inventory control, and production distribution. In addition, he introduces techniques for successful conflict resolution on both a business and a personal level.

"Good story. Ok performance"
The story so good, but unlike The Goal, this story requires a little more work to follow. Without seeing the diagrams and not having them explained in full detail, it takes a bit of imagination to know what the characters are working on. An accompanying PDF would be great!!!
The narration is mediocre. Every character is whiny. And Alex sounds perpetually angry. I preferred the narration in The Goal significantly more, but the story still shines through. It's not grating, but not as good as it could be.
"Good, but not as good as the original"
overall good audio book. what is really frustrating is the narrator speaking for all participants. hearing his voice as Alex Rogo as well as his 14 year old daughter, wife, or coworkers makes it hard to follow who is who. tools and techniques could have been explained better.
"Essential "reading" for any business person"
Brilliant concepts told in an engaging manner. Takes "The Goal" and theory of constraints to the next level.
I had already read The Goal and this sequel is just perfect. The TOC is just well applied to different fields!
"Great follow up to "The Goal""
If you enjoyed "The Goal", you will enjoy this book. It takes the problem solving method that "The Goal" leads you to by the end of the book, expand on how that works through some very different examples in applying it.
"Goldratt does it again"
Another brilliantly written teaching novel. The way that Eliyahu showed how we can apply The Theory of Constraints to every area of business was not only interesting it was exciting. Everyone can learn something from this book even if you are not in marketing or production. "It's just common sense".
"One of the best business books. Ever."
Absolutely fascinating. The only thing the audiobook lacks are the visuals of the logic trees. I just finished the book and now I'm going to look for some visuals and listen to it again, just as I did The Goal. I actually listened to that book (the prequel) 3 times.
"another great addition for a TOC junkie!"
I couldn't get enough. on a very busy schedule i managed to listen to this book in 3 days!
"loved it very well written "
absolutely loved it.... why are all pm books not written on this format. absolutely valuable data . practical knowledge and fun story to listen to
"Great book, but you need to read others to get the most out of it"
I have really enjoyed "The goal" and this book follows suit into the domain of thinking processes. However, it would be hard for me to learn directly from "It's not luck", if I have not read Dettmer's "The logical thinking processes" book. This is because "It's not luck" just gives lots of examples of thinking processes that are fragmented. There are a few partial explanations of how to use them yourself. Dettmer's book, on the other hand, is very through, but it is also very dry. So, "It's not luck" motivated me to go back and review the dry material in the Dettmer's thinking processes book. I am giving this book 5 stars because I think the author achieves his objective of whetting readers appetite.
