A Practical Guide to Information Architecture
A Practical Guide to Information Architecture
Price: £3.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for experienced UX & IA., 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been designing and building websites since 1997. I have worked on several intranets and many large scale projects. Let's say I have extensive experience in IA. And I still learnt a lot from this book!

Donna gives names to structures, tells stories of past projects, and shares helpful advice like "if you eliminate terminology during user testing, document it, or risk a manager replacing your chosen wording with a rejected one, in ignorance".

It may be harder to digest for complete novices. A modicum of familiarity with IA, intranets and websites as well as their technology is assumed.

I'd happily read it again!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but short. Not sure it's worth the money., 16 Sep 2014

Quips and quotes. I read it cover to cover in one hour. Not worth owning. Flick through one in a bookshop. Then buy the original book from which the stories and quotes are extracted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable!, 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I trained as an engineer, and have worked as a designer in IT for 9 years. I'm a user experience architect, if you've heard of UX.
Never having been to design school, much of this book's design school practices and trivia was news to me.
However, all the lessons about presentation (prepare), plagiarism (don't do it), portfolios (show process), hiring staff (work with people you like) and more are in fact invaluable.

Buy this book.

Read it.

And put it somewhere within reach. You'll want to look something up within days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful., 16 Sep 2014
Most awful dress i have ever touched. The shape would be fine, but the fabric is cheap and the sewing unbelievably bad. Dress had unfinished seams, wonky seams, twisted fabric, and threads hanging off!! Do not buy this dress. The seller has others with better materials.

Also the description here says it's mostly wool. It isn't, it's all cheap (feels horrible on skin) polyester.

After FOUR failed setup attempts (and one by my partner), I give up. This was a waste of money.
