In this incessantly readable, groundbreaking work, Vincente makes vividly clear how we can bridge the widening gap between people and technology. He investigates every level of human activity - from simple matters such as our hand-eye coordination to complex human systems such as government regulatory agencies, and why businesses would benefit from making consumer goods easier to use. He shows us why we all have a vital stake in reforming the aviation industry, the health industry, and the way we live day-to-day with technology.
'Vicente does lay out his revolutionary program with a clear, coherent structure of five design factors: political, organizational, team, psychological, and physical. Each is extensively explained and developed with many compelling and detailed examples' - Interantional Journal of Communication
'I believe in this book - I believe in its motivations and I believe it does an excellent job of trying to achieve them. We need more messengers like Vicente. Vive la revolution!' -Ergonomics
