very good book March 12, 2011
I ordered this textbook and I received it earlier than what I expected and in a good condition as if it is new, Thank you :) This is one of the most comprehensive references on the subject of managing and controlling quality one could want. It is straightforward book. Each chapter has some case study, which is real application of quality management. This textbook continues to provide a managerially oriented view with a blend of pertinent technical topics. It's still on my shelf as a reference I refer to often in my business. Wouldn't be without it!
