Information Architecture: Blueprints for the Web
In the introduction, Christina Wodtke claims that her book on IA isn’t for people doing IA for a living – "most of it will probably be old hat." It might be true, that her book won’t make a revolution for the IA field, but it is very enlightening to read about Wodtke’s practical use of the techniques and principles of IA. And there’s no armchair theory here. Everything is backed up by cases, examples, and practical advice on how to make everything work in the real world.

The book concentrates on traditional IA practices, such as:
- User research
- Organising content
- Card sorting
- Personas, scenarios and task analysis
- Site and flow diagramming
- Wireframing and storyboarding

At the end of the book, you’ll also find some she-devil tricks on how to persuade you boss and co-workers to do things your way. Highly revealing - my girlfriend is never going to fool me again.
