Ergonomics in Design magazine"Start reading any of the true tales which Steven Casey presents in this compilation of events of design-induced tragedies (or near disasters), and there is no stopping until you complete the narrative. The end result, however, is another whetting of the appetite for the next event he presents...The Atomic Chef will and should haunt us as we travel in planes, trains, ships or cars, or are in our workplace or homes. It reminds us that we are frequently victims of haphazard design processes or bad design decisions, whether the design be for hardware, software, or operational procedures.
The author may have decided to share these tales with us because of his fascination with the scientific and technical ramifications in each; or rather that he has intentionally used these events to help educate the public about the importance of the proper design of things. In either event, he leaves the reader both entertained and 'gently instructed.'"
