"If you are interested in this important discipline, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web should be the first book you read on the subject."
--Eddie VanArsdall, Technical Communication

"This book (in it’s first and second editions) didn’t become a classic without reason. With extensive treatment of everything from classifying data, to content mapping, to building an IA team, the authors have built a lasting reference for novices and sophisticates alike. Here is a guide to consult repeatedly as you come across specific problems that the book addresses...In the end, the authors achieve their dual objectives of teaching good information architecture practices, and helping the architects illustrate their worth to the unconvinced."
--Chris Masotti, The Captial Letter, Sacramento Society for Technical Communication

"The authors present a new way of thinking about information architecture that includes building Web sites that support co-creation, and designing for access by mobile devices and multiple platforms. Their emphasis is on making large Web sites easier to navigate, and for making large amounts of information more accessible."
--Michael Kleper, The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing

"The book intends to show information architects, designers, and web site developers how to build large-scale and maintainable web sites that are easy to navigate and appealing to users. The third edition is updated to address emerging technologies while maintaining its focus on fundamentals. "
--Brian Dunwoodie, CMS Wire
