"Since the first printing of this book in 1959, Henry Dreyfuss Associates has kept this invaluable resource current and at the forefront of anthropometric research - this edition is no exception.". "The Measure of Man and Women provides up-to-date measurements and information for children, teenagers, adult men and women, and the elderly through its detailed text, convenient tabular material, and 200 anthropometric drawings. Data and guidelines are also included for the visually and hearing-impaired, the wheelchair-bound, and others who are differently labeled. All measurements are presented in imperial and metric units and reflect people of sizes ranging from the 1st to 99th percentiles."--BOOK JACKET.
