A real curate's egg of a book. On one hand, very enthusiastically proposes Lean & Six Sigma concepts without a lot of the wall of complexity that can deter people from using either.

On the other hand, the book is horribly badly organised - concepts are used before they are every introduced (sometimes long before), and are rarely explained adequately. The features on the author's downloadable macros are introduced in chapter 3, along with many references to the different types of charts is sup

Comes off as a weird mix of sometimes being extremely shallow in its coverage and other times being oddly overspecific about certain points. The reason for this quickly becomes evident - the book essentially serves as an extended infomercial for the author's package of Excel macros.

This book lived to the promise of demystifiing LSS. I was able to easily follow about 75% of the contents and I plan to apply this knowledge and hopefully get the benefits of reduced delay, defects and variation. Actually it looks very obvious once someone walks you through it. I haven't yet downloaded the free-trial QI macros, but they seem a good benefit of purchasing the book.

Does get a little in depth sometimes, and I was really looking for an overview, but overall a good book on Lean and Six Sigma practices. Especially good if you're going to be implementing what you learn immediately or in the very near future.
