Reseña del editor

Everything is getting more complex. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of information we encounter each day. Whether at work, at school, or in our personal endeavors, there’s a deepening (and inescapable) need for people to work with and understand information. Information architecture is the way that we arrange the parts of something to make it understandable as a whole. When we make things for others to use, the architecture of information that we choose greatly affects our ability to deliver our intended message to our users. We all face messes made of information and people. I define the word “mess” the same way that most dictionaries do: “A situation where the interactions between people and information are confusing or full of difficulties.” — Who doesn’t bump up against messes made of information and people every day? This book provides a seven step process for making sense of any mess. Each chapter contains a set of lessons as well as workbook exercises architected to help you to work through your own mess.

Biografía del autor

Abby Covert specializes in delivering a highly collaborative information architecture process and teaching those that she works with along the way. Abby speaks and writes under the pseudonym Abby the IA, focusing on sharing information architecture content with those working within the design and technology communities. She teaches information architecture at The School of Visual Arts, Parsons: the New School and General Assembly NYC. Abby prides herself on being an active organizer and mentor within the IA community. She currently serves as the president of the Information Architecture Institute and as an advisor for the Information Architecture Summit. She holds credit for inventing World Information Architecture Day, a free annual conference held simultaneously in dozens of locations across the globe. Now in its fourth year, World IA Day has been held in 50+ cites. Thirty eight more locations have been added for 2015. After ten years of practicing information architecture for clients and writing about it on the web, Abby saw that too few people knew how to practice it for themselves. She decided that the best way to help would be to teach this important practice. And, after two years of teaching without a textbook, Abby told her students that she intended to write the book that was missing: a book about information architecture for everybody. This is that book. In developing this book, Abby wrote more than 75,000 words, clarified the contextual meaning of more than 100 terms, and tested three distinctively different prototypes with readers.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Finally, a true IA primer 23 de noviembre de 2014

Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
There is nothing wrong with Lou Rosenfeld's or Christina Wodtke's pre-eminent books on information architecture. But they are thick, dense reads you just can't hand to someone asking you, "So what IS information architecture anyway?" But now comes Abby Covert's short book that explains, plainly, why IA is important in unadorned text. I think we may look on this book in coming years the way we look on Don't Make Me Think: A book that can explain to the layperson why we in the UX/IA world do what we do. It's short, plain, clear, and smart.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Nothing but the bare facts, but I wanted more on how to use those facts. 21 de junio de 2015

This book has nothing but the facts, which is why I cannot give it 5 stars. The author does a fantastic job of breaking everything down to its key components. The weakness is that you do not really understand how you would use the information. You are left with facts, but not any understanding of how real world use would unfold.

The topic is great, the outlined facts are well written and logical. It is that I need more to take benefit of the author's great work.

The author claims that this book is for "anyone looking to make anything of any type" (or something along those lines). That's not a very coherent premise, and it shows in the quality of the book. Admittedly I'm not an "information architect" (I'm a software engineer), but the lack of focus turns what could have been a treatise on tackling "wicked problems" into a confused set of ramblings about God-only-knows-what.

This book is all sizzle and no steak. I would definitely not recommend it.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Self referential? 15 de enero de 2016
Por Jan Kroken - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
The title feels a bit ironic, as this book is a mess.

Both when it comes to content and abstraction level, it is all over the place. Sometimes, the book feels like a philosophical book, discussing properties of empty space, and the subjectivity of information. At other times, it's concrete - like trying to explain what a Venn diagram is (and miraculously failing at that). Other times again, it feels like a short introduction to agile or HCI.

The disconnected change of abstraction level makes it feel pretentious.

Still giving it 3 stars, as it contains lots of useful information - at least for readers that are relatively new to the various topics covered.

I enjoyed the broad direction she took so the thinking could be applied to many applications. There were a few helpful tools and a glossary. It's more theoretical than practical. It's easy to read and follow, and I enjoyed her examples. I'd give it 5 stars but I felt that it's not a book I can refer to with a step-by-step guide. It's more a "take a step back" kind of book--which is valuable, but not as applicable in the day-to-day. I recommend it for folks who deal with information dumped on them and they have to package the messages, architect the information and communicate information whether schematically or in an outline of some sort.
