    I keep having to buy myself copies of this book as my employees take mine! It’s a great book with good updated from the 1st edition. Keep up the good work!

    This book has helped me immensely. I joined a new team where Six Sigma was fundamental to the role but I was a littler rusty… enter the Memory Jogger to save the day! I’m so glad I got this book I bought two copies to have one at home and one at the office just in case I’m ever in need of a quick refresh of one of the SS topics. At ~$20 this is a treasure of information at your finger tips…

    I upgraded from the Green Belt Memory Jogger when I got promoted and started to play a more prominent role in some of the larger projects at my firm. This was a great investment for me and really helped me demonstrate my knowledge of the topics in play. I’d recommend this book, 5/5 stars
