George Eckes, the author, addresses both the strategic and tactical components of Six Sigma in this concise book. Eckes also utilizes a "top 10" framework for technical tools, "soft" tools, and common questions for Six Sigma. These top 10 lists help the reader digest common questions (and their answers) in an easy-to-read and understand format.
I recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about Six Sigma as a methodology -- from both a manager's and a practitioner's point of view.
For a much more detailed review of Six Sigma, I recommend The Six Sigma Handbook: The Complete Guide for Greenbelts, Blackbelts, and Managers at All Levels, Revised and Expanded Edition. For those readers interested in more of a "dictionary" type Six Sigma book, I found
The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook: A Quick Reference Guide to 100 Tools for Improving Quality and Speed to be an excellent reference.
Finally, for a good overview of some of the basic statistics underlying the Six Sigma methodology, I recommend Statistics for Six Sigma Made Easy.
