What this is: a quick, bird's eye view of the basic ideas, concepts, and structure of a Six Sigma project.
What this isn't: a learning tool for someone looking to certify themselves in Six Sigma.

For me, this was exactly what I wanted. A short refresher and guide on Six Sigma terminology and practices. I suspect it would also be useful for somebody working on the periphery of a Six Sigma project who wants or needs to know the general shape of what's going on.

The book gave a terse introduction to the subject of Six Sigma. I found it a little hard to follow at times as it seemed to assume the reader already had some background knowledge of the subject, but for me, being a greeny, it made harder work of trying to understand the concepts of this complex discipline. Nevertheless, it's maybe given me a taster enough to find another book to build on the limited knowledge gained.

Recommends it for: anyone who wants to know about six sigma
It's a pretty good book about an interesting business concept that doesn't take very long to read. That's about it.

It wasn't exactly what I was looking for (I expected a training manual), but worth the read.
Joe O'Connor
Very Good; management perspective of 6 sigma processes, tools, and selection of projects.
Rick Yvanovich
If you want a quick (~60 page) primer on six sigma, this is worth an hours read

You can finish this book in 1 or 2 commutes. Good if you want to get an overview about six sigma. Gives a preview on a few six sigma tools.
Rick Austin
Good book to gain an overall understanding of Six Sigma. It won't take you deep into the details of some of the tools but it does take you down to a level that you have to do some thinking.
