The first few chapters are slow but I believe important. Strictly speaking, however, I think you might skip ahead to the "Define" chapter without too much harm.
Even after achieving my certification, I have frequently referenced sections of this book as a six sigma practitioner. It has pride of place on my desk beside my laptop because it plays a vital role in my daily work.
Further, the bibliography provides a well-curated list of further reading. This text has been a gateway to professional development. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
This is the much cheaper version of the 'normal version' (priced around 90 USD on Amazon) as it is printed for India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan (It says so on the book cover). but it's legal to use it in other countries, even in the US. The content is almost identical. So it's good value for your money to get a brand new book at this price!
My complaint would be the quality of the book binding and the paper quality. The day I received the book, some pages are already coming out of the binding at the bottom edge. The paper is also thinner than the 'normal' version so I have to be careful while turning as it can get caught with your pen or something and get torn.
I also have the ASQ CQE handbook (normal version) which I use primarily. and the binding is very good even after months of rigorous usage. Still very sturdy. So I recommend buying this book ONLY if you will just be using it as reference from time to time, as a backup reference or second reference, but not as your sole study book. I don't think it'll be able to withstand such handling.
Great textbook for Six Sigma, and a great thing to learn. It will help you raise your income. Look into it if you haven't already
