    This book shipped just as promised. There were a few highlighted areas of text and you could tell it was used, but it is exactly what I was expecting and what I paid for. Shipping was quicker than I expected and I would definitely purchase form them again. Great job!

    It’s a very good book. I liked it because it illustrates many problems with human computer interaction/design and it also gives you hints on how to avoid these problems. The book is very straightforward and easy to understand. I specially enjoyed the sections dealing with readability and reading distances. This is the preferred book to have on my bookshelf when I’m designing consumer products. Happy reading

    I’ve used this book when teaching a human-computer interaction (HCI) course in an engineering psychology program. While there are two extensive texts on HCI I found their emphasis too much on the engineering side. Bailey, while including good technical material, also provides a perspective that fits well with engineering psychology. His information combines well with that in books by Wickens.

    Bailey’s material goes well beyond PC issues and provides good understanding of various system design techniques. For exampe, his descriptions of ATM system design gives good direction on how to do design. He provides a good foundation on such important topics as human limits, human senses, memory, usability assessment, task analysis and ways to help people work better.

    While this book isn’t cheap, it is worth every penny (or kronor).
    It is on my shelf.
