Information Architecture by Peter Morville & Louis Rosenfeld

Once again, one of those books that I just didn’t get around to until now. It’s a piece of foundational literature on the subject and now I know why. The book spends a lot of time covering exactly how the authors think about IA and how to communicate that to stakeholders. I’ve found that 80% of my job has been trying to convince a team that a better IA could make a project.

The latter part of the book covers the meat of how and why to organize information in meaningful ways. When I say “meaningful” I mean truly impactful to the user and the product as a whole. Morville and Rosenfeld have done a great job of combining the psychology of human behavior and the challenge of scaling information in the digital age.

A must read for anyone on a team that’s working on almost any project.
