superbly written and unique historical treatise of how the human factors/ergonomics discipline came to be and how it has progressed over the past century. … a treasure trove of history, mainstay principles, practical examples, and thought-provoking applications for HF/E. This book is an absolute must for professors teaching ergonomics and human engineering at any level. It is replete with concrete examples that make for good didactic lecture material that can incite students to think proactively in implementing design decisions - not only data-based but rooted in workplace practicality. … I highly recommend that all HF/E practitioners, as well as professors in the field, consider this book as a superb guidance source.

… a well-known textbook of basic ergonomics now in its third edition. It has a practical, down-to-earth approach to the subject. This new edition has sought to enhance practicability by including an 'ergonomics workshop' in each chapter which gives worked examples and identifies tools or 'instruments' to do specific ergonomic jobs … Rating, four stars (Buy, read, and keep)
