Susan Orr and Howard VanEs have mastered the subject of repetitive stress injuries. As one who sits in front of a computer as much as 8 hours a day, I have personally struggled with repetitive stress injuries. "Office Ergonomics" is the most comprehensive book on the subject I have encountered. I have already made adjustments to my work areas based on guidance from this book. Anyone working at a computer should read this book before they become injured. --Jerry Mellin,Senior Manager, Human Resources-Web Delivery, Kaiser Permanente
"Office Ergonomics is great at simplifying a complex subject. This is a highly informative and easy to use book that makes working at a computer safer and more enjoyable.
