  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin | 9/26/2013

    " A bit better than the average business book about six-sigma in that it's not just a sales tool trying to convince you to implement it at your company, but also gives tips on how you can better use the techniques at companies that are already using the business model. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy Dickinson | 7/3/2013

    " A good introduction to Six Sigma statistics-based business improvement methods. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brad | 2/15/2012

    " This is a group of summaries of how companies succeeded. It also has a summary of VERY general descriptions of the Six Sigma program, but without giving the reader any true wisdom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dax | 10/3/2011

    " Well, it's pretty good for a six-sigma how-to. Whether six-sigma can live up to its promises is another question entirely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis | 6/8/2011

    " I listened to the abridged audio version. Based on that, I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe the book has more detail, but this audio version was full of summarized info that I could have gotten from a Wikipedia article. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Dubois | 1/14/2011

    " Great information but it is a very dry,textbook style of book. If you make it bedtime reading material you will fall asleep and not retain anything. Best to read when you are alert and seeking information. Very process oriented. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth E | 3/24/2010

    " Painful. I thought the book would be more of a commentary on how these big companies embraced the process and what their bottom-line success was. Instead, this book was more of an owners manual on Six Sigma. Not at all what I expected. "
