    Hi,

    I’m new to quality and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good book (or books) to get started learning about Six Sigma. Thanks a bunch!

    Hi, Kathy! Welcome to the wonderful world of quality! For six sigma books, I would recommend anything by TOM PYZDEK of Quality America, Tucson AZ. Also, you might to want to check with American Society for Quality’s site (www.asq.org) or Quality Press (qualitypress.asq.org).

    Hi Kathy,

    You MUST purchase the Juran handbook. I think the name of it is actually “Juran’s Quality Handbook” and if you go to amazon or something — you’ll be able to find it as the one with about 1500 pages! It’s no cheap purchase, but it covers everything you could possible want to know about quality.

    If your company purchases books for you, this is the one.

    Best of luck and let me know what you think of it,
    Carl

    Hi Kathy,

    Welcome. If you’re looking for a highly statistical view of quality, you can try (I believe) “Implementing Six Sigma”. It’s a pretty decent overview and good statistical reference.
