    Rohan,Best wishes on stocking your Quality library.You would be well advised to start with the basics,
    including some books by Dr. Deming (“Out of the Crisis” is a good start), as well as Dr. Juran (he has several very good ones, but my old copy of “Managerial Breakthrough” is still my favorite).When you get done with those, let me know and I will suggest some good follow-ups.
    Best regards,
    QualityColorado

    I  think the original book by Chambers and Wheeler, Understanding Statistical Process Control, is one of the best.  Wheeler has some very good books on SPC at http://www.spcpress.com.  But as suggested before, start with Dr. Deming.  Out of the Crisis is good as suggested.  Not an easy read.  But understanding Dr. Deming’s system of profound knowledge is very important for continuous improvement.  SPC is affected by all four bodies.

    Understanding Statistical Process Control – Wheeler and Chambers – a good, well written discussion of the subject
    Quality Control and Industrial Statistics – Duncan – the old standby
    Measuring Process Capability – Bothe -everything you wanted to know about process capability but were afraid to ask.
    Regression Analysis by Example – Chatterjee and Price – covers most of the “yeah but” type questions that appear on this forum on almost a weekly basis.
    The Visual Display of Quantitative Information – Tufte – simply the best book on the graphical representation of data available (lots of graphs to illustrate whatever point is being made).
    Visual Explanations – Tufte – A follow on to the above – discusses, by example, the issues surrounding the presentation of the data to provide more than just a stand alone graph.
    The Cartoon Guide to Statistics – Gonick and Smith – a good introduction to the subject with easy to follow examples.
    Deming’s book Quality, Productivity, and Competitive Position is somewhat dense but his case studies are worth the price of admission

    These are a bit off-topic, but “The Goal”, by Goldratt and “The Fifth Discipline”, by Senge help put how and why to improve in perspective.

    Greetings:
    As you move up the Six Sigma maturity curve from beginner to advanced concepts, I’d recommend Strategic Six Sigma by Dick Smith and Jerry Blakeslee, both former PWC gurus. Very easy read and lot of good Real-World Caselets about leveraging Six Sigma as a corporte strategy.
    All the best,
    Greg
