From the reviews:

The 100 international contributors to this book's 76 chapters provide depth and considerable diversity to the subject... Each chapter can be read independently and includes careful definitions and reviews of major topics and good descriptions of main methods... The editor's philosophy is to provide all engineers "with a wider vision of the requirement of sustainable and dependable products, systems, and services in the 21st century." This book provides a guide and reference for many of the engineering tools needed to accomplish this... Recommended.


Choice (August 2009) (Reviewer: S. A. Batterman, University of Michigan)

"The reader has a veritable garden from which to feast from this impressive collection of chapters."


Dr William Vesely, Manager, Risk Assessment, Office of Safety and Mission Assurance, NASA

"Clearly covers the entire canvas of performability: quality, reliability, maintainability, safety and sustainability."


Way Kuo, Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Reliability, President, City University of Hong Kong

Formally Dean of Engineering and University Distinguished Professor, University of Tennessee

"The book should be of interest for reliability researchers or instructors that need some additional material--such as examples or new trends--for intensive courses given in reliability engineering. ... the technical content is impressive and the vast diversity of areas covered can be perceived as its greatest advantage; it enables, for instance, networking reliability experts to get acquainted with the mechanics of software reliability, which can be quite inspiring." (Piotr Cholda, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2009)
