"In fact, [Statistics for Experimenters] might be [one of ] the most readable...books on statistical methods...would be a wonderful background for someone who wants to move into quality control. For such practical purposes, it exceeds any five books on mathematical statistics. The first three chapters are a superb introduction to statistical thinking, something that does not occur anywhere in most texts." -- The UMAP Journal
"It is hoped...that experimenters in all fields will be encouraged to read this text. " -- Biometrics
"The authors are to be congratulated for having written an excellent book. Students fortunate enough to have this as a text will have the opportunity to learn much, and not the least from the review questions and numerous well-contracted problems. Engineers wishing to advance their elementary understanding of statistical design and analysis will be delighted with this work. The writing is literate, and the technical aspects impeccable." -- Journal of Quality Technology
