Book Description

May 28 2008 1420077511 978-1420077513 3

Loaded with information on the design of work systems, workplaces, and workstations as well as human anthropometics, Ergonomics for Beginners: A Quick Reference Guide, Third Edition provides a useful quick reference and valuable tool for novices and experienced professionals alike. Retaining the features that made each previous edition a bestseller, the authors have meticulously revised the information to address rapid developments in information and communications technology, offering ergonomics advice on topics such as wireless, remote, and hands-free controls, website design, mobile interaction, and virtual offices.

Understand the Utility and Limitations of Modern Technology

In their trademark, eloquent style, the authors explain the application of a human-centered approach to the design, testing, and evaluation of work systems by considering the interrelated set of physical, cognitive, social, organizational, and other relevant human factors. Their elemental, but comprehensive, treatment of the subject matter provides an authoritative and archival reference of basic theoretical and practical knowledge that will help enhance human performance and reduce the undesirable effects and unintended consequences of many human interactions with technology and the organizational environment. Small enough to carry along to work sites, with simple and clear illustrations, the book examines how to improve performance and reduce the undesirable effects and unintended consequences of many human interactions with technology and the work environment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will not use this seller again. Nov. 18 2012
By Terri M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for an online college class that is only eight weeks in length. I accidentally ordered two books. I tried to cancel one order and was never cancelled. The seller sent me an email informing me that the ordered was already processed. My account was charged for both books. After many emails I still had not received either book. After four weeks I had to contact Amazon to have this problem corrected. Amazon did refund my money, however, I never did get the books. When you're in college it's important for sellers to honor their end of the bargain and deliver books as promised. I went 4 weeks with out the book and ended up buying it from another seller at a better price and cheaper shipping and handling. If the seller would have just answered my email instead of ignoring me this whole problem could have been taken care of. Student beware of this seller.
