"...a compelling call to action....Each chapter begins with well-articulated facts, trends, forecasts, and so on that are offered as stimulants for thought about the topical problem....it is written in such an interesting and engaging manner that a diverse audience should find it provocative, eye-opening, and informative....an excellent source to learn about the enormous diversity, and possible applications, of human factors research....Nickerson succeeds in his goal of stimulating thought about the role of the human factors profession to help resolve national and worldwide problems."
"An outstanding book! Nickerson has done his homework. The most comprehensive and best integrated analysis of the future needs in human factors that I have seen anywhere in the world. Well organized and clearly written. Should be on every human factors practitioner's or researcher's 'must read' list. Would make an excellent text for a graduate seminar in human factors or ergonomics."
