Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2003 Voices (Smart Apple Media)
All web sites have an architecture, whether you design one or not-just as every building has an architecture, from the lowly shanty by the railroad track to Chicago's tallest skyscraper. Unfortunately, most web sites are shanties, not skyscrapers. Companies that hastily threw up a web site in the dot-com boom days were visited by building inspector Jakob Neilsen, who told them their site should be condemned. But now we are entering a time of rebuilding, and we've got a chance to get it right. Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web introduces the core concepts of information architecture: organizing web site content so that it can be found, designing web site interaction so that it's pleasant to use, and creating an interface that is easy to understand. This book will help designers, project managers, programmers, and other information architecture practitioners avoid the costly mistakes of the past by teaching the skills of information architecture swiftly and clearly. Use this book and you will pass the usability inspection with flying colors!

Das Engagement von Christina Wodtke besonders im Rahmen der Portale "Boxes and Arrows" und "Elegant Hack" ist bemerkens- und lobenswert. Dass sie außerdem noch ein eigenes Buch schreibt, verdient Achtung. Leider hält die Qualität nicht ganz mit den von ihr gegründeten Websites mit.

4.0 von 5 Sternen locker aber gehaltvoll 23. Februar 2005
Format:Taschenbuch
Mit der sehr lockeren Art muss man umgehen können, denn auch wenn es auf den ersten Blick nicht so scheint, so wird dem Leser hier recht vollständig der Beruf des Informationsarchitekten beschrieben. Manch ein Kapitel lässt den Zusammenhang vermissen, doch das unterscheidet ja ein Buch vom Flash-Intro: Mann kann ein paar Seiten überspringen, ohne gleich das ganze Buch skippen zu müssen.

Format:Taschenbuch
Christina Wodtke spricht hier eindeutig aus der Praxis, das macht das Buch spannend und hilfreich zugleich. Dennoch wirken die einzelnen Kapitel etwas beliebig zusammengetragen. Alles hat irgendwie mit dem Beruf des Informationsarchitekten zu tun, das meiste davon ist auch ganz interessant zu lesen. Doch es fehlt die Struktur, mit der sich die Inhalte in einen Zusammenhang bringen ließen und damit sicher wertvoller würden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Anschaulich und gut zu lesen 13. Mai 2005
Von Bine
Format:Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch wird sicher keiner der großen Klassiker zum Thema Informationsarchitektur und Usability. Aber gerade deswegen macht es sehr viel Spaß, dieses Buch zu lesen. In leichtem, humorvollem Stil beschreibt Christina Wodtke dieses interessante Berufsbild. Nachvollziehbar und anschaulich teilt sie ihre Praxiserfahrung mit. Wenn man sich mit diesem Thema auseinandersetzen möchte, sollte dieses Buch nicht das einzige sein, das man sich zulegt, aber durchaus das erste.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Lack of focus 12. Mai 2003
Von Martin Brinks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When reading the book I was briefly enthralled by her critical take on the standard (guru) guidelines for good site design - but it should have been a warning on what was to come: a mixing of usability, design and information architecture. Off course the three disciplines mingle in every site development, but in a book called Information Architecture it should dedicate all its pages to that subject - but all too often I find myself halfway through a chapter before realizing that it is mainly about design and usability (or even project management) and only secondly about information architecture.
Another thing that seriously degrades the focus is what I see as a shameless attempt to make the book thicker by including non relevant material. On pages describing the organizing of content she manages to use up half a page with a picture of her husband with the caption "Looks cold, doesn't he?".
She could also have spent more time organizing the book's content. With chapters named "Making It All Up, Writing It All Down", "All Together Now" and "Eat Me, Drink Me, Push Me" it is impossible to navigate in, impossible to look for some kind of principle behind the organizing of the content.
The book should have been called "Site Development: IA, Design and Usability for the newcomer".

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks Depth and Substance Necessary for this Subject 15. März 2003
Von Susanna Hutcheson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
While well written and entertaining, the author fails in this book to present a volume with any real depth. If one is in search of a book that explains information architecture and provides some really good guidelines, this is, however, such a book.
The reader is directed to carefully plan the Web site, to commit it to paper first and to do a prototype which should then be shown to others for their input as users.
All this is fine. But she seems to thumb her nose at credible usability experts (while not naming them one senses one is Jakob Nielsen) by attempting to prove that the rules don't really matter all that much.
That would be obvious when you visit her personal Web site, ... You'll find locating links a considerable task.
I am sure she's very professional and very good at what she does. But this book did not speak to my desire to better understand usability and information architecture in a manner that I could adapt to my own work immediately. It was more of a survey of IA.
I much prefer the work and exhaustive studies of Jakob Nielson and others who provide workable ideas that have proven themselves over time. The author of this book doesn't seem to hold with their findings. And indeed, one must know the rules and then set about to improve on them. So I have no argument with her here.
My argument is that she puts no stock in the "rules" yet she fails to offer any alternatives. Had she done so, the book would have been a breakthrough read. It was not.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Wake up the editor! 29. August 2003
Von Per Esmann Jensen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I suppose Wodtke knows everything there is to know about IA, but I not so sure about her book writing skills...
Given that she claims that "yes, it's a short book" (false modesty at 350 pages?) it's surprising to notice the number of digressions - into some pretty lame issues, perspectives and tips:
- How she got the idea of writing a book.
- What the book is not about.
- A 30 page discussion of guidelines she does not support.
- A comprehensive guide to the pros and cons of different ways to draw people, e.g. stick people.
- A note that you need a big notebook or a whiteboard and some markers if you want to do some topic mapping.
- A tip that when receiving guests you might break the ice by asking if it was easy to find the way.
Actually, I learned quite a few things by reading this book, but I call for the editor to wake up and give Wodtke some decent advise if she decides to go for a follow up. Any half decent editor could take a hundred pages out of this book in an hour, ending up with a much better read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The "Don't Make Me Think" of Information Architecture 30. Oktober 2002
Von Jess McMullin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Christina Wodtke has done for Information Architecture what Steve Krug did for usability - produce a practical and accessible introduction to the field. 'Blueprints' provides a pragmatic look at the practice of information architecture, illustrating a solid "toolbox" of techniques and methods useful for web designers, producers, developers, and others involved in the creation and evolution of web sites.
Wodtke's quirky humor and light tone make the book an easy read, but don't let the fresh style convince you that the content is lightweight. Behind the breezy prose is solid instruction in methods that hit the sweet spot of effective tools that still work with limited budgets. The "How-to" coaching is coupled with reasonable explanations about why and when to apply the techniques...Ms. Wodtke doesn't just prescribe methodology, she informs the reader with enough theory behind the practice to explain and justify it to management, clients, or other team members.
The tools taught in the book all center on creating a web site with great usability and findability - where things are easy to use and content is easy to find. While the "toolbox" isn't complete, it's a great foundation for pursuing a user-centered approach to creating web sites.
The book's biggest shortcoming is inevitable - IA is a complex field, and there could be so much more detail on some of the topics. Sometimes I felt that I wanted more on a particular subject, and it wasn't there. But to keep the book readable and accessible, some things have to be left out. The book's recommended reading list does go into more depth on many of the topics, providing an avenue for people to learn more once they've absorbed the lessons here.
Overall, this is a great debut and a valuable addition to the field of information architecture and the broader practice of web design and development. Experienced information architects will find little new here, but it's great to have a book that acts as a gentle on-ramp to IA and puts so much into one package. If you're new to the field, work in a related discipline like graphic design, or want to have a quick explanation of various IA methods for colleagues, I highly recommend Blueprints for the Web.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Overview of IA 16. Mai 2006
Von R. Walling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a web developer and have always been fascinated with the interaction of humans and web sites, and this book does an excellent job of explaining the subject in simple terms while addressing more complex issues, as well. I read this book back in 2003 when it was first published and, not being an information architect, was happy to find it spoke to my level of knowledge.

With chapter titles like "First Principles: Some rules of thumb, and some thumbing of the rules" and "Gurus and Rules: In which some people like to boss you around, when we know that's my job," the book entertains as it educates, and leaves you with a comrehensive set of steps & guidelines when designing a site from scratch or improving an existing one. Numerous case studies, screen shots and diagrams also break up the monotony of what could otherwise be a boring subject.

If you're new to IA or are looking to expand your knowledge of architecting user interfaces for the web, this book belongs on your bookshelf.
