Speed to Market Separates Winners from Losers. I usually don’t have time to do book reviews, but … I just had to make an exception. …the best part is the format of the book itself. It’s easy to read and contains detailed, step-by-step, how-to-do-it information that can help turn any shop into a winning team.”

Kathy Molloy, Editor, Designer’s Forum

Speed to Market is dumbfounding in its practicality. It makes you wonder why more how-to books aren’t written this way.”

Donald A. Keal, Principal, Joshua Jordan Associates

“Mr. Bozzone addresses the issues around his topic with clear and direct prose that reflect his even more clear and direct thinking.”

Richard B. Hardy, Chairman & CEO, Hyde Tools

“There’s a lot in here…picks up where The Goal left off.”

Jim Smith, Assembly Magazine

“Although Bozzone doesn’t employ the Socratic method and fictional set pieces favored by Eli Goldratt, both provide profound yet simple answers to complex problems we all face every day. Goldratt taught us the basis for judging a company in The Goal, and how to work through bottlenecks in Theory of Constraints. Bozzone teaches the practical planning and execution required to stay one step ahead of delivery requirements without going broke.”

Don Williams, ManufacturingManager. Kennetex, Inc.
