A Lean Referrence List

These are most of the books that I have read over the last seven or so years and that I found most helpful. When I first started reading and learning about the Toyota Production System (Lean), one could probably fit all the available books on one shelf. Today, it would require one (or more) bookcases! More proof that Lean is real.
