review by

Information Architecture for the World Wide Web. It seems like a good topic to write a book on. There are so many good ways to approach a topic like this, and the online society desperately needs people who understand the importance of this topic. Unfortunately, I found whenever I read this book I was looking for a reason to put it down. Each page just went on about information that, to me, was useless. For example, at one point in the book they brought up business management for an entire two pages! A small reference or analogy is good, but thats a bit far.

Of course, the book does have the wonderful layout of all O'Reilly books, and, if you can read through (mostly) useless information for a bit, this book would provide you the knowledge you need to go out and create good websites, both internal and external. If you really need a book on information architecture, this book will suffice, although it is a ways away from being up to O'Reilly's spectacular quality.
