pro: The book gives reasonable good overview of the various sampling method out there.
Con: This book deals with statistics, which is non-intuitive material by nature, hard to grasp even for people which deals with statistics on daily basis (I happen to be such a person). Unfortunately, the writer did not invest enough effort to alleviate the non-intuitiveness of the material (by almost completely neglecting graphics, by not giving clear and concise definitions for each parameter, variable and equations used, by not explaining the Excel functions used, etc.). In addition, there are many inaccuracies in the text and equations which makes it even harder to understand.
Another issue are the cross-references (page numbers, equation numbers and figures numbers), in the kindle version, do not work properly (I'm not sure I can blame this on the writer, but she is responsible).
Therefore, I would not recommend this book to most people.
I have been using a single-stage sampling plan by attributes for years, and now I see that it is not always the best tool to use.
I should add that it is a college textbook first, before being a practitioner's guide. But it explains the concepts simply and clearly, and it refers to the calculators at sqconline.com (very easy to use).
