... By bringing together experts in eye movement research in reading, scene perception and driving within this excellent single volume, Underwood has done more than the driving research community a real service. ...a testament to what can be gained from well directed specialist meetings...

...Over 30 distinguished contributors discuss in 20 chapters the general topics of eye movement measurement, and eye movement guidance in reading (approximately one half of the book), visual search, picture perception, and dynamic displays. The book is refined in scope and provides good coverage of these specific areas. ...The impression left by this book is a favorable one. Many researchers engaged in this line of research will find it an important addition to their library. ...the individual authors struck a fine balance between reviewing historical theory and fact, while presenting contemporary findings and new topics.
