5.0 von 5 Sternen The only book you need to begin your career as an IA
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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Go got to dig for the gems.
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...

1.0 von 5 Sternen It'd be funny if I had'nt had to pay for it!, 26. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
Very few good points, the rest is just completely obvious stuff you can figure out by yourself if you're not a complete moron, like "search options should be clear" (doh!) or "while the flip chart is a close relative of the white board, several characteristics distinguish the two...", "Flip charts are portable. White boards are often anchored to walls and won't fit in your car.", (and this stuff goes on for half a page, I wanted to throw it out of the window), or "television guides are organized chronologically." (no kidding!).
It looks like most of the book was written with the objective of filling at least 200 pages, and they barely made it only with the help of huge and useless pictures and countless repetitions, and of course the bibliography and the index. Just like a term paper by a lazy high school kid, except you are going to pay money for this.
I don't understand why O'Reilly put it in the animals' books series, it just can't touch any of the others I've read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another industry standard, 18. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
The basics of information architecture must be understood by anyone designing a web site. Granted, some people intuitively know these basics, but for the rest of the world, this book will introduce you. Coming to IA from the highly organized world of library science, the authors know the ins and outs of making information available in an easy to use organizational system. Obviously, anyone going into IA should read this book; it's considered a standard. It's not a bad idea to loan it to your content developers and coders, too, though. If they know a little better where you're coming from when you suggest ways to organize information and pages, they may be more receptive to your suggestions. The only drawback is that the sites used for examples are a bit dated now, and there are some innovative things being done currently with navigation that aren't covered here as a result. Get this book now, and if they come out in a year or two with a revised edition, take a look at the new examples.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr gutes Buch, scheinbar fast das einzige zu diesem Thema?, 9. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
Bereits im Vorwort klären die Autoren über das weitverbreitete Mißverständniss auf, dass "Web-*Site* Design" dasselbe sei wie Web-*Page* Design. In diesem Buch geht es nämlich um ersteres.
Die Autoren - "von Haus aus" Bibliothekare mit einer einer Consulting Firma zum WebSite Design - beschäftigen sich in typisch locker-amerikanischer Art und Weise mit dem Thema Informationsarchitektur großer Websites. Jeder, der mit der Planung neuer oder der Reorganisation bereits bestehender Websites befasst ist findet in diesem Buch jede Menge theoretischen Hintergrund und praktische Informationen zu Themen wie Bildung von Rubriken, Organsisationsschemata, Navigationssystemen, sinnvollem Einsatz von Suchmaschinen etc.
Diese Buch hilft Klarheit im Kopf zu bekommen über die Ziele und Aufgaben einer WebSite. Man wünscht sich, mehr Menschen würden es lesen *bevor* (oder wenigstens während) sie eine WebSite aufbauen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very informatitive; Presents info in a new light, 6. März 2000
Von 
Jennifer Fowler (Plainfield, IL United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
For myself, this book really helped me find the best way(s) to group and lable content - - something that when dealing with a 'catch all' intranet can get out of hand.
For my boss & co-workers, this book provided me with a better way to present information architecture to them. These are people who think that IA is just something that anyone can go out there and do, whether they have internet developement experience or not. They believe that IA is not really important.
After reading some of this book and taking notes, I was able to present my ideas and the book's ideas in a way that made it clear to my boss and co-workers that IA isn't something that can be skimmed over.
I haven't finished the book yet but already I feel I've gained a bunch of insight and new ideas on how to work the information architecture angle of a site, and from there, work to build a better site.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for large and small site design, 11. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
This book should be essential reading for any person involved in not only large scale site design, but small as well. The concepts they discuss are geared towards companies with 80,000+ pages, but I found myself taking notes on what to improve next time I design a 10+ page site. Don't get this book if you're looking for ideas for the "look" of the site. It doesn't offer any. Instead if gives you ideas on how to increase its functionality, efficiency, and ease of usage -- concepts many of us ignore in our excitement for spinning logos and flaming navbars. Some concepts they discussed were "common sense", but many of them were not, especially when discussing how to organize everyone from the marketing dept. to the artists of a company web site and pre-launch discussion of a site before the designing begins. You'll want this one on the shelf for that next major project.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Information architecture babble, 24. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
For a book on Information architecture to be useful it can either present new ideas or it can present old ideas in a systematic manner.
I am sorry to say, but this book does not neither. No new information is presented and no attempt is made to systematize the knowledge. The book is best characterized as a monologue, with lots of repetitions and banalities, and no adequate final summary.
It is, perhaps, of some value for the complete novice on web design, to show that web design can be dealt with rationally, but then again, the chances that novice designers have to deal with large websites is extremely low.
There is therefore no reason to buy this book.
I give it two stars because it is well written and not incoherent. But why it was written, I don't know.

5.0 von 5 Sternen buy it for everyone in your web development company..., 14. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
a DEFINATE ASSET for ANY role in website development- from the project managers, designers, to even developers- it would even be a good book for clients who want results or are working closely with the agency developing content for their site. i am going to ask my boss to buy this book for everyone at work! this book reinforces many basic website organization "rules" while offering many that i never thought of- all to help me have a fresh approach to organizing websites and interfaces each time i begin a new project at work. it teaches you what to look for to constantly learn while working and visiting other sites. i've been to one of louis' seminars and would also reccommend you to go to one!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Bottom line, don't waste $20 on this book, 10. März 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
I am in the middle of reading through this book for the second time, trying to find something that isn't common knowledge. If you are completely new to web navigation design you might benefit from this book, but the authors do not present a coherent methodology. In fact, I have found navigation design information on the web to be vastly superior to the authors' ideas. Information Architecture is an incredibly misleading title, the guts of the book deal only in mainstream navigation ideas. The authors simply summarize information that is readily available and completely avoid any innovative ideas or future directions of web site design. Bottom line, don't waste $20 on this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't start planning a website without this book, 4. Februar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
Put simply, this book was my bible when designing my organization's website. It clearly explains the need for serious information analysis before even putting the first tag on your page. It also details the methodology for organizing content, layout, navigation, structure, and planning search protocols. But most importantly it gave me the tools to go into my "web task force meeting" (the bane of any webmaster's existence) with the tools to get everyone on the same page. The resulting website pleased everyone and thanks to this book, allowed me to design an open-ended structure for easy growth and continued web development.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good point, but bad content/space relation, 8. März 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (Classique Us) (Taschenbuch)
The book argues for web masters/designers to think more about the site and less about single pages: Navigation and terminology should be unified throughout the site, before the individual pages are detailed. If you buy this argument, you may like the book, because there are few others which stress that point. However, the advice the authors offer on how to achieve that unification is not that overwhelming - I found most of the book vague and much too long; many arguments are repeated over and over from chapter to chapter. This book makes a good point, but is not really dense with information.
