"I have used the second edition of this book for an Introduction to Reliability course for over 15 years. … The third edition … retains the features I liked about the second edition. In addition, it includes improved graphics … [and] examples of popular software used in industry … There is a new chapter on Bayesian reliability and additional material on reliability data plotting, and repairable systems’ analysis. … The book does a good and comprehensive job of explaining the basic reliability concepts; types of data encountered in practice and how to treat this data; reliability data plotting; and the common probability distributions used in reliability work, including motivations for their use and practical areas of application. … an excellent choice for a first course in reliability. The book also does a good job of explaining more advanced topics … the book will continue to be a popular desk reference in industry and a textbook for advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate students."
