"The book is process oriented rather than tool oriented. This makes it refreshing and useful. This is a book every reliability engineer should own." (Reliability Review; 12/08)

"An excellent reference book that should be on every individual involved in Six Sigma or even just quality assurance/quality improvement." (TQM Magazine)

"...a useful guide for both academia and organizations...useful source of reference for researchers...an excellent reference book..." (The TQM Magazine, Vol 15(6) 2003)
