Top Logistics and Supply Chain Reading List (excluding textbooks)

When I teach logistics and supply chain management, I always ask students to review a book about logistics and supply chain management (excluding textbooks). Here is the list of the books I think worth reading and will give the reader a good example of the logistics and supply chain concept. Some books also discuss about the value chain concept.
