I'm about to learn statistical reliability theory for the first time. I'm told that Barlow and Proschan's book entitled "Statistical theory of reliability and life testing" is a classic on this topic. However the book is age-old and also I cannot find a copy of it.

**I was wondering if anyone can suggest me an alternative (or a list of alternative) decent book(s)/monograph(s)/lecture note(s) from which I can learn the subject (basics and advanced). **

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the references therein +1 It gives a list of books. However, which one suits my purpose is not entirely clear. I'm still keeping the question open for recommendations from the readers. $\endgroup$ – firestorm Sep 24 '18 at 5:47
  • $\begingroup$ If you are looking for basic concept then Life Data Analysis is very suitable. $\endgroup$ – Angel Sep 24 '18 at 5:50
  • $\begingroup$ The part that was posted as an answer (a bare link) has been converted to a comment. The part that should have been an answer (an actual book title) was posted as a comment. I invite you to convert that to a full reference and repost it as an answer. $\endgroup$ – Glen_b -Reinstate Monica Sep 24 '18 at 7:52

I'm a fan of Reliability: Probabilistic Models and Statistical Methods by Lawrence M. Leemis. It is a great value at ~$34 for the 366 pages. I'm told the author got sick of big textbook companies pricing things at outrageous price points.
