"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."

-F.T. Durso, J.I. Norris, A.R. Dattel
