4.0 out of 5 stars Great for instructional purposes
By GregF on September 2, 2019
I have been using the LSS Pocket Toolbook for years, primarily in an instructional mode. No, it is not a book that is going to add any knowledge to an experienced quality resource as many reviews state, but it is a very good tool for teaching new CPI resources. I am currently in a teaching role where this book is handed out to every participant. In fact, if the books do not arrive in time, it is disruptive to the teaching flow. For most topics in the class there is an equivalent area of the Toolbook that I can first refer to before going into the main material. I have an established nightly reading plan that will take a participant through the entire book in the course of a two-week introductory CPI class. I teach some topics entirely from the Toolbook, for example, C&E Matrix and DoE. There are some key concept pages that we turn to and read together, for example, page 70 Types of Data, page 118 Types of Variation. The section on hypothesis testing provides some very good plain language descriptions of the basic concepts that help people get through the initial learning. I am on my third copy where I coil bind and add tabs for quick reference. I carry this book wherever I go when teaching or working on CPI projects; there are almost daily opportunities to open it and discuss some aspect of CPI. If I were to change anything about the book, I would make it flow in more of a DMAIC fashion with some additional information about the use of the tools in the context of a project. There is a section that does this to some extent, but somewhat general. Many minor typos remain in the book from the first edition, but no technical errors that I have found. The PDF version that has been around for some time is not formatted very well, with page breaks in the wrong locations and tables not converting well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect
By M. Ross on July 25, 2020
I saw another review where they got the item spiral bound so I followed suit. This is a great reference book for someone starting out. I am about to take my yellow belt test and running some projects for work. I thought this would just be a reference but it has helped me plan the project from start to finish. This book was recommended by a master black belt at work and I now see why. If you are starting out I would say add this to your collection. Not sure if it helps you pass the test but it has helped me understand key concepts.
