This book was "recommended" reading for one of my courses, so I really didn't read much of it. However, I can say that it is a handy tool to have around, as it consists of easy, bite-size articles about the various theories used in the field of information behavior. Rather than having to go back and find the article(s) a theorist wrote, the vast majority of theories can be easily found in this one volume. This book also contains a handy index and an extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter. ( )

The introductory chapters explain key concepts, theory–method connections, and the process of theory development.
