Self promoting, too general bookI read 14% of the book and then randomly jumped to what I thought would berelevant parts Everything is way too generaly exposed, no real methodology, patterns or eye openung case studies This is just writing for the sake of being called an author, unfortunatelly Obviously, I don t recommend this book. Helpful CompleteIf you re interested in information architecture, and I mean seriously interested in it, this book is well worth reading It s a comprehensive and practical reference that could sit on your desk as you work through your first client briefs or coursework projects It s a little dry in places and could be brought up to date for the responsive design and app era, which is why it s three stars But the fundamentals are strong it s all about the user and the research, remember It also benefits from Donna Spencer s extensive commercial experience this is not an academic book, and arguably, is all the better for it Highly recommended. well done Donna, this is a brilliant introduction to Information Architecture Even as someone with years of experience I picked up a few new tips and tricks from this book Well worth my time and a beautifully written and designed book.

This book was an excellent primer into developing an information architecture, though I wish it would have focusedon the actual creation of the IA, understanding categories and how to incorporate all the information you get from the design research. This was a decent introduction to IA and website design that I d recommend to someone new to the subject Unfortunately for me it covered a lot of concepts and strategies I was already familiar with. Such an easy read but it took me soooo long Pretty straightforward book, butfor website designers. A good basic introduction to organising information. This was a great primer on the practice of information architecture As a young IA, I found a lot of the information refreshed things I already knew, but there was also some new information as well I thinkexperienced IAs would find this quite basic, so it might not be the best book for all you seasoned pros.Of the new stuff that I learned from this book, probably the most helpful was the section on IA testing Now, I ve done usability testing, and card sorting before, but I hadn t yet read a detailed methodology for testing a site architecture after it was reasonably established, but before any of the wireframing or design work had started skip to chapter 19 for this I m going to try to implement at least some level of this testing into my projects from now on.Also, this was the first book I read on the iPad, and I wrote up some thoughts on that experience on my blog.
