Here’s what customers said about the first edition of A Practical Guide to Information Architecture
Donna’s book was an engaging and educational read. It should be a staple for any UX Bookshelf, and required reading for junior information architects. It’s filled with bit of humor, and contains many real world examples to back up the lessons she is providing.
The book assumes no previous knowledge other than knowing what a website is. It’s a very gentle introduction to a hard topic. The writing style is relaxed and definitely not heavy going… I recommend this as an excellent starting place for your IA learning or even to pick up some new tricks if your already a practitioner.
This was a great primer on the practice of information architecture… Of the ‘new’ stuff that I learned from this book, probably the most helpful was the detailed methodology for testing a site architecture after it was reasonably established.
Who is this book for?
This is a book for anyone who needs to create information architectures—particularly for large websites. If you’ve ever wondered what process you should follow when designing site maps, choosing navigation labels, or grouping content that just doesn’t seem to want to fit neatly into intuitive categories, this is the book for you.
