The book content is superb and takes lean knowledge onto the next level. Shingo is often forgotten in terms of his impact. Book reasonably priced and delivered as expected.

Detailed engineering description of TPS 12 Oct. 2003
By Michael J Leahy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are a lot of books about the Toyota Production System, but this is one of the most useful for those actually attempting to implement elements of this system. Most of the books on TPS by western authers are just superficial glosses written by MBA's who don't seem to have a clue how to make anything. This book is detailed, specific, clearly written, and very well translated. Some of the material is repetative, nevertheless this is the book to get on TPS.

"The" Book for Those Interested in Process Improvement 10 Feb. 2008
By Loyd E. Eskildson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Shigeo Shingo was the mastermind behind the Toyota Production System, constantly experimenting and thinking on how to improve. The result was an approach that significantly reduced required inventories (and their associated costs and losses), improved quality, and reduced throughput time.

"A Study of the Toyota Production System" is somewhat difficult to read, due to translation issues, but more importantly will make you stop to think, scratch your head in disbelief, and then finally agree in amazement.

Value for money 2 Oct. 2009
By Kjetil Nyvold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I knew what kind of book I needed as additional litterature in my Msc study.
The writer Dr Shiego Shingo looks at the production flow from an engineering viewpoint wearing a scientists glasses and transform the knowledge to the book so it is easy to understand for every technician or economist interested in how to improve and do the lean production thing. A book that can give you a new understanding about how to practically remove or reduce lead time. Key words as waste of making defective products, transport waste, overproduction waste and inventory waste are essential as well as effective set up methods (SMED).
serious manufacturing involved people should read this first....... 1 Sept. 2013
