Finance Without Fear
William Hettinger ’83 and John Dolan-Heitlinger • Institute for Finance and Entrepreneurship, 2010

Finance Without Fear

In Robustness Development and Reliability Growth, the authors present a complete process for ensuring product performance throughout the entire life cycle, from understanding customers’ needs through manufacturing and post-launch support. A section on tools and methods shows how to institutionalize best practices and apply them consistently. Finally, they tie strategies, decisions, and methods together through a case study project.

Traffic
Reiner Decher ’61 and Thomas White • VTD Rail Publishing, 2010

Traffic

The invention of engines has allowed the widespread development of mobility by vehicles that utilize almost exclusively oil. Traffic is a discussion of the issues relating to the notion that the railroad might play a better role in providing mobility for people and freight. This book is written for the lay reader and policy maker, illustrating the history of the railroad and its role in the U.S. Traffic is a follow-on of the author’s book, Mobility: Engines and Institutions.

Reiner Decher ’61, professor emeritus at theUniversity of Washington, has taught and published in the field of energy conversion by engines, specifically the engines that make mobility possible, especially aviation propulsion.
