From the reviews:

“Profiles in Operations Research: Pioneers and Innovators, a volume that should be sitting on every operations researcher’s bookshelf, well dog-eared from having been read and reread, is such a book. … beyond reading Profiles in Operations Research for personal pleasure, this book should be standard reading and discussion material in the first doctoral seminar for our graduate students. … So, obtain your copy of this book. It will be well worth your investment.” (Paul Gray, Interfaces, Vol. 42 (1), January-February, 2012)

“This massive volume is a priceless contribution to the history of OR. … will remain a very rich source of information for many years to come. … This book is a significant contribution to the fascinating literature on the history of OR. … Assad and Gass deserve much credit for again offering to the OR community this work on the origins, developments and accomplishments of those who shaped this wonderful applied science called Operations Research.” (Hans W. Ittmann, IFORS Newsletter, Vol. 5 (4), December, 2011)
