"I found the book immensely thought provoking and utterly
engaging....This outstanding book deserves a place, not on the
bookshelf, but open on the desk of any student or professional
working in the field of aviation or engineering psychology."
-Ergonomics"It is a highly useful book for those who wish for a comprehensive overview of a complex topic. It could also serve as a graduate text for aviation psychologists and engineers and as a practical guide for aviation professionals...who need practical guidance when solving aviation problems."
-Ergonomics in Design"In the middle of the last century, the authors of the first ergonomics textbook (Chapanis, Garner, & Morgan, 1949) were wrestling with many aspects of a new field ... At the beginning of a new century, Tsang and Vidulich offer an edited volume of 14 chapters presenting the tough problems and the principles relevant to solving them."
