my comments as a designer
This book can be called as bible for the freshers as well as for the experienced ones. All data especially the ergonomics part is mentioned in very easy & visual way which gives ease to all the nos. who refer to the book. I personally sometimes gets confused about the sizes & areas & thus suitability of furniture in accordance & movement space required in & around the object . In such confusion I do refer the book & yes I do find it resourceful. I dont say it gives me complete solution as the data is in generalise form & not specific about the space, but yes what I gain from the book is the key to arrive to a solution & than impliments the unsaid rules of the interior space in an given premises & within the virtue of space. I personally find it very informative & would recommend for the same. Thanks
