    Discover ISO 9001... - By George H Hummel on September 25, 2018

Very clear and easy to understand!

    Readable, Clear - By Teguh Prakoso on August 24, 2018

This book helps me a lot to understand ISO 9001:2015. It explains strategic and operational aspects of the QMS standard. Suggestions to improve the book: 1. Case study of strategic side is about shoe-maker company and operational side is on car service company. I think it would be better if both sides cover the same company so the reader is easier to connect strategic to operational aspects, and vice versa. 2. Please give more how-to.

    Great book! - By Carl B. on November 09, 2017

Really good book, easy to read with a lot of real life examples. Definitely something to recommend.
