Book is Finished

The book, she is perfect!

Ok, no she isn't. She is unedited... but finished.

I am considering yanking out about 5 pages that covers the basics of QFD, simply because while I did my best to explain it... it is very complicated and questionably useful... I fear that people who read it will either be confused or worse, think they understand it and misuse it. At the same time, there are hundred pages books written on QFD, so there is no hope of conveying a more accurate look into proper QFD use.

I'll probably nix it and put it up on here for you to laugh at.

One tiny question... what is QTFDQD? :)

Oh, and BIG CONGRATULATIONS for Unfinishing your book! Great news! Did you make that deal with the publisher?

No publisher deal. They were uncertain they could effectively market it and wanted me to double its length (to which my reply would be doubling it's length wouldn't double its content.)

If they had been more certain of its success I could have justified doubling the length... but those two factors... well, no thanks.

QFD: Quality-Function Diagram, AKA a House of Quality diagram. Look it up on Google.

I've decided to nix it from the book. I may dedicate a paragraph to it ... possibly starting with "In memory of the QFD Chapter"

I hope you are selling an electronic version too, PDF or whatever, and if you already know a price for that, tell us, so I can start saving ;) I'm a poor man.

i'm sorry but i dont think i'll read your book. What one would need are serious statistics on indy businesses (which are terribly hard to provide), not theories, opinions and anecdotes.
