"Hancock's wizardly perspective in the preface whets the reader's anticipation of what follows as he weaves a technical tale covering the broad taperstry of human performance. Most chapters are written with overwhelming depth and yet are easy to understand. Although Hancock's volume is not set up as a handbook per se, anyone in or aspiring to the human factors/ergonomics discipline needs to read this book. HF/E practitioners will no doubt find themselves mercilessly marketing their copies of this text for repeated review and reinforcement. Many topics I thought I had mastered earlier are now, through these provocative chapters, being rethought more deeply and in new ways - the hallmark of a very stimulating book we should all buy once, read twice, and keep handy always." --ERGONOMICS IN DESIGN "I found each independent chapter of the book to be invaluable in terms of providing the reader with an in-depth appreciation of the issues being considered within that specific section... I believe that this book would offer a detailed and practical account of current thinking on human performance in varied applications." --ERGONOMICS ABSTRACTS (Volume 33, Number 4, 2001)
