About the Author
Warren Brussee spent 33 years at GE as an engineer, plant manager, and engineering manager. His responsibilities included manufacturing plants in the U.S., Hungary, and China. He received his Six Sigma training at GE, but found the training and the related manuals wanting. Warren then began teaching a simplified version of Six Sigma at GE and eventually wrote several books on Six Sigma.
Warren Brussee’s current Six Sigma books, Statistics for Six Sigma Made Easy and All About Six Sigma, both published by McGraw-Hill, have sold over 50,000 copies and continue to sell well. Many universities use Statistics for Six Sigma Made Easy as their primary text for teaching Six Sigma. Three such schools are: The University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Bridgeport School of Engineering, and Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

The Uneasy Partnership that Will Change the World
Authors: Jones, Handel
©2010 | 1st Edition | 304 pages , Hardcover
Pub Date: July 2010
Price: US$ 27.95
From a leading global economic analyst, the definitive look at the costs and benefits of competing with China
Conventional wisdom pits China against the U.S. in a war for economic supremacy. However, In ChinAmerica, Handel Jones, a pioneer in creating Sino-American business partnerships, and one of the leading experts on China’s industrial and economic emergence, demonstrates that the wave of the future is cooperation between the two titans, not conflict-and how America will benefit from increased economic engagement and competition with China.
Focusing on several key areas of conflict and mutual interest, Jones details what American businesses and policy-makers must do to keep pace with China’s private and state-owned corporations. Filled with sharp observations and cutting-edge research, ChinAmerica is the most comprehensive look yet at the interdependency of the world’s two leading powers. It is, in short, a book that will change minds about Sino-American relations.
“A must-read for anyone seeking to understand the emergence of China as a major industrial power and how profoundly it is changing the world economy.” — Dr. Henry Kressel, author of Competing for the Future: How Digital Innovations Are Changing the World
“This book is essential reading for business leaders and observers everywhere as this dramatic shift of economic and political power from the West to China continues.” — Ray Bingham, chairman, Flextronics International
“ChinAmerica provides extremely in-depth visibility into the interactions and interdependency of China and the United States. I believe everyone who takes the time to read it will learn of the many challenges and opportunities that exist for both China and the United States.” — Richard Kulle, president and CEO, gEM Services, Inc.
“Handel Jones lays out concisely what China is doing right and the United States is doing wrong. This is a wake-up call because China today is the most serious economic competitor that the United States has ever faced. This book should be required reading for all U.S. politicians and business leaders.” — Wilfred J. Corrigan, founder, chairman, and CEO (retired), LSI Logic Corp.

The Drucker Lectures
Essential Lessons on Management, Society and Economy
Authors: Drucker, Peter F.; Wartzman, Rick
©2010 | 1st Edition | 336 pages , Hardcover
Pub Date: July 2010
Price: US$ 29.95
Previously unpublished talks from the Father of Modern Management
Throughout his professional life, Peter F. Drucker inspired millions of business leaders not only through his famous writings but also through his lectures and keynotes. These speeches contained some of his most valuable insights, but had never been published in book form—until now.
The Drucker Lectures features more than 30 talks from one of management’s most important figures. Drawn from the Drucker Archives at the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, the lectures showcase Drucker’s wisdom, wit, profundity, and prescience on such topics as:
- Politics and economics of the environment
- Knowledge workers and the Knowledge Society
- Computer and information literacy
- Managing nonprofit organizations
During his life, Drucker well understood that over the last 150 years the world had become a society of large institutions—and that they would only become larger and more powerful. He contended that unless these institutions were effectively managed and ethically led, the good health of society as a whole would be in peril. His prediction is unfolding before our eyes.
The Drucker Lectures is a timely, instructive book proving that responsible behavior and good business can, in fact, exist hand in hand.

It was also a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in history. Wartzman is the co-author, with Mark Arax, of the best-seller The King of California: J.G. Boswell and the Making of a Secret American Empire, which was selected as one of the 10 best books of 2003 by the San Francisco Chronicle and one of the 10 best nonfiction books of the year by the Los Angeles Times.
