Steven Peterson
This is a quick reference book on techniques for improving "speed, quality, and cost." The book focuses on DMAIC--(Page 1): "Define- Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control." As a toolbook, the volume focuses on "how to do it." In the end, this is a useful introduction to the subject, although discussion does not go into great detail on various techniques.
Karin Hennings
Good reference/refresher once you've learned through other examples.

A must have for anyone trying to implement LSS. I keep this in my Kaizen Toolbox and reference it frequently.

Besides being a good reference it is an idea generator.
