Reviews and Testimonials

"Bernd Stahl's book brings a refreshing new insight to the relationship between human beings and technology. The lessons learned in each case are of high value and can undoubtedly be applied to many business situations. The breadth and depth of the 15 cases, presented here, is a good indication of the quality of this publication. Congratulations!"

– Anabela Mesquita Sarmento, ISCAP/IPP, Portugal

The contributors of these 15 articles use a variety of disciplines, including computer science, sociology, gender studies and theology, to describe new approaches to the ways technology and humans interact, and how they affect each other.

– Book News, Inc., Oregon

This book provides a broad view of approaches to the study of Technology and Human Interaction (THI). It is an important guide for students seeking to understand how the sociotechnical approach can be applied to study THI as well as for researchers investigating THI.

– Isabel Ramos, University of Minho, Portugal

This book brings together different approaches that investigate how humans use technology and how technology can, in turn, influence the behavior of humans.
