"The integration of so many aspects of footwear design into a single volume is a challenge, but Goonetilleke has produced an extremely interesting book. … a valuable contribution … So, if this book were a pair of shoes would I buy them? I like their look, the material is great, and having tried them on for fit they're just about right."
―Alex W. Stedmon, Human Systems Integration Applied Research Group, Faculty of Engineering & Computing, Coventry University, Coventry, UK in Ergonomics, 2013, Vol. 56, No. 11 , 1789-1791

―Channa P. Witana, PhD, Honeywell
"… a nice addition to the reference library for footwear design. … has more breadth and is a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary overview including both historical practices and some of the latest technologies."
―Dr. Kathleen M. Robinette, Oklahoma State University
