Reads like a boring textbook

Good content, but very dry and boring. No real world examples, just a lot of lists and vocabulary definitions.

Very informative!

I will be taking a class on Lean Six Sigma in the near future and wanted to get a jump start on the concepts and I am so glad I found this book! I knew very little about Lean Six Sigma but after listening to this book I gained
a very knowledge foundation. I plan on listening to it again just to have the concepts reiterated before I take the class. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject! I also give the delivery of the audio a 5/5 stars!

Great Introduction to Lean Six Sigma

Great introduction to Lean Six Sigma. There were take-aways I could start implementing in my work life immediately. I will listen to it again for a second time to fully comprehend. There is a good flow and delivery from the narrator; I wasn't left struggling to get through the book.
