Review:

This new edition, published some ten years after the first book rolled off the press, reflects the explosion in technology witnessed over this past decade and draws heavily on lessons learned during this technical revolution...Far too often, a new edition of a book is merely a few cosmetic changes to the previous edition, a new cover, a new chapter or two, perhaps. But substantive changes are infrequently made. The HUMAN FACTORS HANDBOOK, Second Edition is the exception to the rule. The premier edition was torn asunder and ripped into this decade by the talented hands of the Tillmans. Worth adding to the shelves of any designer or engineer, the HUMAN FACTORS HANDBOOK, Second Edition is the definitive guide on designing with human minds.''

All designers and industrial engineers should read this book.''

A skillfully handled work that quantifies many disparate design and program concepts, the HUMAN FACTORS DESIGN HANDBOOK makes a solid addition to design and engineering collections.''

The new edition reflects many new concepts based on lessons learned with computers and from space prgrams. More than 500 diagrams, checklists, and tables help clarify the data presented.''

...useful for architects and for designers of all types - industrial, office, furniture, etc. Libraries that serve these professionals or students of architecture and design will want to consider purchase.''

Since its original publication, HUMAN FACTORS HANDBOOK has become a standard for human factors design and analysis. The current edition will undoubtedly reinforce the authoritative status of the book. Purchase is stongly recommended (in spite of the price) for both academic and industrial libraries and for human factors designers, engineers, and consultants.''
