This book can easily be divided into 2 sections. The first is an overview of how and why information is organized. The second is how to apply that information when planning and designing a large website. To the author's credit, they took a potentially dull topic and actually made it interesting. I would have appreciated less background and theory and more practical advise on how to plan a website though. There are some gems in this book, but you really have to dig to find them. Since there is really no "hands on" advise this is a good book to read while traveling. If your designing a large enterprise website you would be wise to read at least the second half of this book...especially if you are in management.

This book is amazing. Each chapter succinctly describes the key attributes of good "Information Architecture" - what it is and what it is not. It does involve navigation but not the content. It does involve labeling but not very much creative design.
Especially useful for consultants - sample questions and worksheets to give clients to help you get a better understanding of what they want and help them understand your role?
They show you examples of sites that have bad navigation, labeling etc. and examples of good sites too.
It contains a lot of useful usability information - why frames are bad etc.
Also at this price every web programmer/designer should have a copy.

This book may be OK if you've just been put in charge of an intranet and have never used the web before. If you have spent more than a week surfing the internet in your life, you will feel, as I did, that this book states and restates the blindingly obvious ad nauseum. I actually failed to finish this book, I found it so terribly dry and unenlightening. Another thing that really bugs me about it is that the authors pose question after question, but never really supply an answer. Sometimes they make tentative suggestions that this-may-work-then, but never many good examples. They also reference screenshots of one little area of a given website, but this doesn't work because (if you believe the basic premise of the book) a website is a coherent item, not a distinct set of pages. Therefore highlighting specific elements of a website out of context is meaningless. Better spend your time surfing the web and thinking for yourself why some sites work and some don't.

I'm quarter way through this book. Some things have been pleasing, like reading that they find flashing gifs everywhere annoying, and I use these to show my clients that my original gut-feeling was right (they had a few and I said 'lose them'). But really its like applied common sense. Of course people like the powerful facilities at hand etc. I found most of what I'm reading covered on two twenty minute chats with Drue Miller on webmonkey radio

I know that the Lynch and Horton (Web Style Guide) book is slightly different in it's thrust, but I think it's better at the overall delivery of information architecture and web design theory and practice. It's highly professional and stands out from all the fluff-guides to web design. Then again, Rosenfeld and Morville do take a unique library science perspective that is one of a kind (if not a bit chatty). Guess it's good to own both books.

This book contains some great information for the initial architecture of a site, however, if you are not a librarian by trade the overwhelming references to this profession become extremely annoying.
The basic info also seems to ramble on and get restated rather than expounded upon. Overall the book does hit on some interesting point, but the lessons could have been condensed and more case studies could have been added.

Today many Website design technologies and rigid content requirements have made Web development a more demanding task. Although there are many fine Website design books around to assist Webmasters, a return to the basics of design layout is in serious order.
Information Architecture for the World Wide Web offers readers the guidance they need to design Websites that are easy to manage, navigate, and expand as mission requirements change. Rather than discussing strict HTML and Web graphics design, the authors focus upon the actual mapping out of Websites to insure that they are properly structured and will deliver content in an efficient and orderly manner.
Rosenfeld and Morville outline the main job tasks of the information architect and the disciplinary background they should possess or cultivate. They cite backgrounds in library science, journalism, engineering, marketing, graphics design, and computer science as essential disciplines to be embraced. When brought together and put into practice they will perform important roles in developing an eye and mindset for successful Web development.
The authors discuss important Website design considerations such as the productive use of screen real estate, navigational bars, frames, pull-down menus, and other features that can be employed to effectively deliver Website content. Although this line of instruction is not the main emphasis of the book, the brief addressing of these features assist readers to gain added perspective of the overall strategy of delivering, you guessed it, Web content!
Readers are instructed to perform thorough research to determine answers to questions such as: What are the goals? What can your clients afford? Who are the intended audiences? Why will people visit a site? What types of content should and should not be part of the site? Answers to these and other questions should be determining factors throughout the entire Web development process.
Readers will find the discussions involving brainstorming extremely helpful. This activity should be of major concern during the Web development process. The use of boards, flipcharts, mockups, design sketches, developing prototypes, metaphor exploration, creating scenarios, and structured blueprints can greatly enhance the entire development process.
Reading this book will be for many a refreshing and stimulating experience. Readers will gain valuable behind-the-scenes insight necessary to successfully design Websites that not only look good but perform well to achieve intended goals. Good HTML, programming language scripts, and flashy Web graphics are not enough. Pick up some solid visionary thinking skills. Highly recommended!

I had been looking around for a book like this for some time now: one that guides me through the crucial conceptual design phase of web site development. Most books on web site design are really about user interface design. This book offers a top-down planning approach to getting from the recognition of a need for a web site through to the final working design. It plugs up a lot of the gaping holes that topic-specific design texts leave open.
The over-riding concern and emphasis in the first section of the book is on how to organize the information on the web site in such a way that the target audience can readily get at it. To this end, the authors focus on three 'systems' that need to be developed, implemented and coordinated on a web site: a navigation system, a labeling system and a searching system. Once these systems are thought through and designed then the rest of the work becomes a matter of filling in the information content, functionalities and the bells and whistles.
Clear, concise and even a bit humorous, this book will definitely give you a peace of mind if you find yourself a bit overwhelmed at times when deciding on just how you will approach building a web site.

Overall, this book is good beginning read in the field of information architecture. For anyone interested in the topic, my recommendation would be to do additional reading. The authors provide an excellent bibliography at the end of the book which could serve as an excellent point of departure for the student of IA.
As far as the readibility of the book is concerned, it is easy to read although the authors bear responsibility for poor grammar and sentence structure in certain parts of the book. It is my opinion that this doesn't make the book less valuable as a resource.
A couple of other points about the book that bear mention. The authors used the example of the Henry Ford Health System Web site throughout the book. This is a great example. There are a few other examples used in the book However, I think the authors could have provided even more examples. My recommendation for the authors would be to provide the public with a second, more detailed edition. Remember this book was published in early 1998. We've come a long way since then and the web is replete with examples of good architecture.
Overall: Thumbs Up!

Kan man auf Informationen bauen? Ja! Aber nur, wenn das Fundament stimmt!
Man kann sagen was man will, in Amerika machen die Leute was und reden dafür weniger. Das Ergebnis ist dann nicht immer unbedingt der Weisheit letzter Schluß, aber darum geht es ja vielleicht auch garnicht. Sieht man "Information Architekture" in diesem Licht, ist es ein geniales Werk, das vor Augen führt, wieviele Komponenten zu einer Web-Site gehören, die -man wird es nicht glauben- nun einmal hauptsächlich aus Informationen besteht. Dass es dafür nicht das absolute Rezept gibt kann sich ja jeder selbst denken, aber Rosenfeld und Morville geben einem das Gefühl für die Kompelxität und nach dem Buch betrachtet man Web-Sites mit anderen Augen.
Ich empfehle das Buch jedem, de auch nur im Ansatz etaws mit dem Internet zu tun hat, egal ob nun im Designer-, Programmierer- oder Projektbereich. Hätten mehr Leute das Buch gelesen, wäre es manchmal nicht so ernüchernd sich durch die Weiten des WWW's zu klicken. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)
