As a design consultant who integrates Architectural Psychology into my work, I am always on the lookout for new information. Sally Augustin gives us a distillation of the best of environmental psychology. And she writes clearly and fluidly - no dense jargon-laden prose or dry statistical-ese.

Augustin bridges the communication gap between social scientists and the design community. Although technically a text/reference book it is organized and written so well, that even a non-designer can learn from these pages. This is real science made accessible, not pop-psych.

The organizing concepts Augustin uses are places for: comforting, communicating, complying, challenging and continuing.

I was especially delighted by the chapter on Personality and Place - new information to help create spaces for people and their many personality needs/preference. This will add a new depth of knowledge to my work with clients.

I will be referring to this book again and again.

It is one of the dullest and underwhelming books on applied psychology I have ever encountered. I would not recommend it to anyone who has a serious interest in the subject
