Quality Pioneer Joseph M. Juran’s career took off when he published Quality Control Handbook in 1951. The book established his reputation worldwide. He later said of this book,

The Handbook became the ‘bible’ of managing for quality and has increasingly served as the international reference book for professionals and managers in the field. It has retained that position. Publication of the Handbook was also a milestone on my journey through life. Over the years it attracted many followers, opened many doors, and contributed to my being sought after by institutions in the United States and internationally. It vaulted me into a position ofleadership in the field; the decades that followed would solidify and enlarge that status.

The book is now in its fifth edition and has been renamed Juran’s Quality Handbook.
