"Building on his first edition (2001), Karwowski has substantially revised this foundation reference text with nearly double the content, which thoroughly surveys the diverse literature of ergonomics and human factors….This is an essential purchase for libraries serving the community of ergonomic and human factors scholars and should also be considered by those libraries that lack extensive resources to serve better students needing to gain an understanding of how this discipline will affect their professional practice."
- John M. Robson in American Reference Books Annual 2007, Volume 38
