Great textbook about operations research. Particularly useful to the statistician or data scientist who will discover how operations research is similar, and uses the same techniques. I consider it to be part of data science. This textbook is used by Prof Winston at University of Washington in his class Math 381, unfortunately I could not locate it on the Web. I 've purchased a copy in a bookstore selling used books. Maybe it is still available at the University of Washington library. Let me know if you find a place selling it. It must have been a great book, it's sold out.
