I found this book readable and covers what I bought it for, namely, the use of Weibull statistics in reliability. It also covers many other topics that I have not gotten to yet. I'm satisfied

A very good book, but contains some annoying typing errors Aug. 10 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A book with a very application oriented treatment of reliability, based on electronics industries experience. It uses an advanced style of explanation, i.e. assumes that readers have mastered certain topics/knowledge/techniques in reliability.
However, prerequisites for reading this book must be clearly stated; i.e. what basics are required, are the basics given in the books enough, etc.
Some typos appear in description of table/figure (i.e. table 6.7 written as table 1.7).
Also some computational errors appeared in the answers to selected problems.
These are indeed small errors, however they detract from a good book's image.
Especially for new students in reliability and would-be practicioners, the answers to the problems in the book are very necessary to provide concept/technique mastery and understanding check. Why do not the authors provide answers to ALL problems?
One possible thing to add to the contents is the design of reliability experiments, i.e. the general concepts and some examples drawn from some areas of interest (mechanical, electrical).

Overall Best Reliability Engineering Reference Oct. 2 2011
By Book Fan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Having used the various editions of Reliability Engineering in my work for many years, I can report that I have found it to be the most useful reference available. While there are many other books about reliability engineering, the others are either too applied (overly focused on the engineering) or too mathematical (not concerned enough with the application). This text has found the sweet spot: not only does it do due diligence to the mathematics without getting lost in it, it also ties the computational techniques to problems similar to those in my work. In addition this new edition shows how to use readily accessible computer applications for the necessary calculations, a very useful added benefit.

This is the required textbook from my Quality and Reliability class. I had very limited knowledge of statistics but this book is very easy to read and understand for me.
