I used this book for a web design class ages ago. I remember liking it, and if I recall correctly, it wasn't a how to code book as much as it was about how to present information in a clear way. Not sure how dated it would be today.

This is a solid introduction to information architecture. No, it isn't Morville and Rosenfeld's Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, but Wodtke and Govella's book covers the essentials, does so in a friendly, non-frightening way, and is a little more portable than the polar bear book. Plus, it's actually enjoyable to read, which is a good thing in its own right. ( )

Although not as in-depth as 'the polar bear book' by Morville and Rosenfeld, this book on IA is much more approachable, and therefore perhaps easier to introduce IA concepts to interested colleagues. Also has some tips on keeping care of yourself as you play the IA game. ( )

This book covers a range of core concepts in the field of information architecture. It’s packed with practical advice and is downright fun to read. This is the kind of book you can read in a few sittings. ( )

"Morville and Rosenfeld's work is for the information professional, while Wodtke and Govella is for anyone in an organization who might have responsibility for or oversight of the Website. Certainly, anyone in such a role will benefit from the book, since it will give them useful insights into the role of information architecture in Website design and, perhaps, enable them to understand when things have gone so far astray that some professional input is needed to put it right."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735712506, Paperback)

All web sites have an architecture, whether you design one or not-just as every building has an architecture, from the lowly shanty by the railroad track to Chicago¿s tallest skyscraper. Unfortunately, most web sites are shanties, not skyscrapers. Companies that hastily threw up a web site in the dot-com boom days were visited by building inspector Jakob Neilsen, who told them their site should be condemned. But now we are entering a time of rebuilding, and we¿ve got a chance to get it right.

Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web introduces the core concepts of information architecture: organizing web site content so that it can be found, designing web site interaction so that it's pleasant to use, and creating an interface that is easy to understand. This book will help designers, project managers, programmers, and other information architecture practitioners avoid the costly mistakes of the past by teaching the skills of information architecture swiftly and clearly. Use this book and you will pass the usability inspection with flying colors!
