Praise for the first edition: Gold Medal Winner for Design Explorations - Business Week' s Annual Design Awards " The Measure of Man and Woman is a critical reference that is a must for every design school and office. It is elegant in its simplicity and usability. Once again, the Henry Dreyfuss team makes a major contribution to the profession!" - Herb Tyrnauer, FIDSA " The Measure of Man and Woman is a major contribution to the understanding of anthropometric and ergonomic realities that influence the design process. It is a vital reference document that not only informs, but provokes an awareness of and a sensitivity to complex and composite issues. Not since Le Corbusier' s more subjective and interpretive Le Modulor has there been a comprehensive reevaluation of man and woman' s occupation of space and the subsequent implications, responsibilities, and possibilities." - Charles Gwathmey, FAIA, architect The Measure ofMan and Woman provides a comprehensive resource of critical information for creating products and environments that will suit the physical dimensions of people across the globe and with varying abilities. The revised edition of this classic volume includes more than 200 color drawings, up-to-date information on designing for the digital workplace, measurements for ADA compliance, a demo disk for ErgoForms- an ergonomic CAD program on CD-ROM- and much more.
