To read and understand IEC 61511 and IEC 61508 is very difficult. This is the most simplified book to understand functional safety.

Really useful. First step for an aspirant to understand the subject (even if he doesn’t have any background). The book is written in a simple and easy language which could be understood by individual (from any stream) interested in the subject. Such an easy way of explaining the subject with examples can only come from an expert in the field.

I have read the book and found it very nicely explained concept, making it easy to understand. I liked the following parts of the book
1. IEC61508 lifecycle model has been shown and described in easy to understand words, as we read through.
2. Important words (to be remembered) are mentioned in bold letters and it is explained.
3. This book covers more information in lesser number of pages. The basics is covered nicely.

The book is really worth to read & that too in a single attempt as on such subject, it’s quite tough to keep eyes open following the few pages after preface… thanks to the seamless blend of knowledge and humor. For me, the book appeared like a yummy dish of a master-chef than a technical jargon of grey haired techno-crack

I just want to let you know that I loved your book so much, I tried to understand the safety functional with my own effort and I download many books but it was hard to understand this topic in that clear view as in your book.
