"A wonderful resource compendium on the diverse landscape of information design. From theory to practice, the book is truly an effort in the 'design of understanding'"--Clement Mok, Chief Creative Officer, Sapient
From the Author
Preliminary Invitation to the Reader
INFORMATION DESIGN is the first comprehensive anthology on this topic to appear in over a decade. Contributors from 16 leading practitioners and scholars help to define the field, explore its theoretical and practical foundations, and discover how best to systematize and teach information design.
The foreward by Richard Saul Wurman sets a tone of thoughtful exploration and debate. INFORMATION DESIGN is less a how-to and more a deeper investigation of the soul of the information designer: the motivations and personal insights of experts who have been practicing information design long before it became popularized by the Internet and World Wide Web.

I'd have preferred two or three volumes to one try-to-be-everything text. Also, I sense a need for a magazine or online journal, to bring things up to immediate date. But overall, I was plenty impressed and satisfied with this book.
Clement Mok, a personal fav rave, on the dustjacket calls ID the "design of understanding." This book does a good job of it.
