Only days from now, we’ll finally be releasing my latest book, Surviving ISO 9001: What Went So Terribly Wrong with the World’s Foremost Quality Management Standard, and How to Implement It Anyway. You may remember that I released a sneak of the table of contents over half a year ago, but now am happy to leak the entire thing. Have a look, and have your scroll bar ready:

Surviving ISO 9001 Table of Contents

You’ll notice a few things. First, the clauses are sometimes out of order because screw mathematical order!┬áNext, you’ll see I added a few clauses that don’t exist, because someone has to do the heavy lifting for the ISO industry. Finally, yes, it’s clocking in at over 400 pages, but that’s the single-spaced original A4-sized manuscript, and not the final typeset edition. It appears that we should hit about 650 pages once it’s formatted for a traditional book size. Fortunately, I’m releasing it as an e-book, so you won’t bust a hernia lifting it.

You’ve only got hours now to order the $30 Pre-Order Edition which includes the exclusive “Part Four” chapter included in the screenshot. Once the book goes gold, the Pre-Order Edition offer comes down, and everyone else will have to pay the full retail price, which is looking to be about $80 now. So if you want to save a few bucks, you really need to order it now. Check the Surviving ISO 9001 website for more details, and a few sample chapters.
