This book is quite old, but it has some interesting ideas. That said, as an ergonomist who was a peer reviewer of the book who was quoted at the beginning, I wanted to clarify that there are signifiant inaccuracies regarding posture that I pointed out to him - and sent him supporting research studies to document these - but he failed to correct his content. He credited my "assistance" even though he ignored all my comments. The content that particularly stands out in my mind is his recommendations that people sit with their knees higher than their hips - which is absolutely incorrect.
