A quick and powerful crash course

Would you consider the audio edition of Design For Six Sigma (DFSS) to be better than the print version?

I really find subjects like Six Sigma a lot easier to visualize on the audio version. Let's face it, a tough subject but I really learned quite a bit from this one. Sort of a Cliffs Notes version of DFSS.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I like that the author gives real life examples of how corporations have utilized Six Sigma in their processes. It's so much more than just for manufacturing really.

Waste of time

What disappointed you about Design For Six Sigma (DFSS)?

A very long list of topics and phrases in this arena. Totally useless.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Highly disappointed. I wanted to learn more about DFSS and found myself listening to a table of content of some imaginary book about the topic.

Mind numbing narration of too many acronyms

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I can't imagine an audience that would enjoy this piece.

What could Ade Asefeso Mcips Mba have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

His voice is OK, but narration below average. The greatest improvement would be to skip the acronyms where possible.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Uttering what was written instead of what should be spoken.

Any additional comments?

When I bought the short book, I expected that the author would get to the point.
I see there was some attempt to be concise, but the acronyms were kept instead of ejected during the content compression. So, the flow was something like, "Interesting lead-in to (technical term) ... (pause) ... (acronym for the term) ... (pause) ... interesting second half of sentence mentioning (technical term) ... (pause) ... (acronym for the term) ... (pause) ..." Repeat this ad nauseum and you have this maddening performance. I made it to 10 minutes before think "oh sh*t" and 40 minutes before screaming. I couldn't finish the book.
