Rather Old, Rather Tired,
This review is from: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web: Designing Large-Scale Web Sites (Paperback)This was possibly the first book to use the words "information architecture" in its title that most people ever encountered. It's since become one of the defining IA texts. However, it has not aged very well at all. The discipline of IA has evoloved rapidly over the intervening years, and the view this book has of the field is really now only one facet of it - essentially that of libriarianship and information organisation rather than the wider activities of interaction design and "user experience" that IA has now widened into.
However, as a good, if rather boring introduction to some concepts that budding information architects will need, it's a marginally worthwhile read. The polar bear on the cover is rather a good choice of animal in this case.
