About the Author
Jorge Arango is a strategic designer and information architect. Upon seeing the then-new World Wide Web in 1994, he left his career in (building) architecture to start the first web design consultancy in Central America. He has since designed information environments for organizations that range in scope from developing-world nonprofits to Fortune 500 corporations. He is co-author (with Louis Rosenfeld and Peter Morville) of Information Architecture: For the Web and Beyond (2015), the fourth edition of O'Reilly's celebrated "polar bear" book. He is also a former president of the Information Architecture Institute, and speaks and teaches about design leadership around the world. Jorge lives with his wife and three children in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can reach him via email at email@example.com or follow him on Twitter, where he is @jarango.

Mr. Arango is certainly one of the most culturally literate people in the field of information architecture today. As such, this is very much a book on the philosophy and ethics of information design – one that is long overdue.
If you are looking for lists of dos and don’ts, or best practices you can apply tomorrow, you will be sorely disappointed. But I guarantee that this brilliant book is going to make you think long and hard about the projects on which you’re working. And it WILL make you a much better designer – digital or otherwise.

It describes various design concepts from a unique perspective. And I think that is mainly what sets this book apart from other titles.
I am definitely recommending this book to be read by anyone interested in digital product design.
