Format: Paperback
Ergonomics and Anthropometrics for the Designer and Student alike. As a teacher of Design and Technology I use this book almost every day with both GCSE and A level pupils. It is written for the University Student or the Design Professional with just about every key body size data given and explained. % star rating for the professional designer, but its a bit much for the school pupils so I have to edit a lot of it myself before presenting it, hence 4 stars given. The late Stephen Pheasant makes this sometimes tedious but essential area of the designers research accesible and readable, I had the previous version (which was stolen by a pupil!) and simply had to replace this before it is out of print, no one else will be able to folow in this mans shoes, he will be missed. A must for those needing this information, my ergonomics bible!

Format: Paperback
I am a student at Bournemouth University studying Product design, and to be honest whenever there is a project set on our course there is always a mad scramble to the libary to make sure you get a copy of 'Bodyspace'. There are other books in the libary on ergonomics and anthropometrics, but they are all very dated or 'sketchy' about the subject - 'Bodyspace' sumerises very well the underlying facts about ergonomics, in an easy yet informative (and very useable) way. If you are a designer, your products will nearly always have some form of human interation - whether it is from manufacture or the end use. A designer should always have at least a knowledge about ergonomics, after all if you design a workstaion for example that is uncomfortable to sit in and causes repetitive strain - it is a bad design! 'Bodyspace' covers a range of topics - from tool design to correct seating positions as well as anthropometric data (human percentile measurements). Ergonomics is a vast subject, with no right or wrong answers, and no set data as humans are constantly evolving in shape - but for a fundimental guide 'Bodyspace' by Stephen Pheasant is very good.

Format: Hardcover
As a student of ergonomics I found this book to be invaluable. It has been written by one of the top names in this area, and unlike other books written by great names, it is refreshingly accessible. The chapters cover a range of topics in sufficient depth to make them interesting, but without the confusing jargon found in so many other text books. It includes a set of anthropometric tables for reference, and clear examples of how this data should be applied. I have no doubt that I will also find occasion to refer back to this book many times during my future career.
