Donald Wheeler has the reputation for writing clear, simple and easy to understand text books for beginners and this book is no different. To me as an experienced Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, it is rather too simple and lacking in depth. There are other books on SPC that are much more comprehensive. .
Best SPC book I've read. Stresses the importance of control charts and clearly explains the statistical theory behind them. This text explains various process metrics and how they should be used. Or more importantly, how they are commonly misused. If you desire a solid understanding of SPC fundamentals, I highly recommend this book.
I purchased this book believing that it would give me insight to SPC and more specifically control charts, and as a supplement to text books I currently own by Montgomery. I can say that this book is OK for beginners who have not had any exposure at all to college level SPC or Control Chart classes or books. However, if you already own any college level text book regarding SPC, Quality Control, or Control Charts, this book will be too elementary for you.
This text seems to have been designed primarily for accessibility, and it has certainly achieved that. It pretty much explains in simple terms (anything above high school math) everything you need to create and use SPC and other control charts. This was more basic than what I was shooting for, but it's easy to skim through parts. I imagine the target audience was lower-middle management or factory line workers.

More in-depth information and proofs are supplied for some aspects, though it is stressed that these methods have been found useful empirically and that was their primary aim, and although a good bit of theory informed their design, they aren't necessarily theoretically rigorous. In other words, they are pragmatic rather than academic.

The techniques are certainly useful. I'm starting to apply them for software.
Bought this book after an ME professor recommended it during a polymer product manufacturing class. The book was cheap and covers the fundamentals.
Hard to follow in some places but seems like an alright book to accompany a college level course. Give you many opportunities to practice concepts though.
Extremely helpful in understanding and utilizing SPC concepts from the three minds that have really lead the SPC effort in the USA (Deming, Chambers and Wheeler).
