Product description

Product Description

This is a book about everything. Or, to be precise, it explores how everything is connected from code to culture. We think we’re designing software, services, and experiences, but we're not. We are intervening in ecosystems. Until we open our minds, we will forever repeat our mistakes. In this spirited tour of information architecture and systems thinking, Peter Morville connects the dots between authority, Buddhism, classification, synesthesia, quantum entanglement, and volleyball. In 1974 when Ted Nelson wrote "everything is deeply intertwingled," he hoped we might realize the true potential of hypertext and cognition. This book follows naturally from that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Prerequisite For Well Reasoned, Professional Information Management 4 June 2017
By tyelmene - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The ground covered here forms a predicate, systemic-contextual funnel from which a more reasoned approach towards information management should be pursued. This is very rational and actionable even as it is thought-provoking, meta-conceptual stuff. No one should devise, develop, deploy, implement, oversee or maintain any information management system without being previously informed by this text. Beyond professional Information architects, this includes the implementation of any personal information management by any professional knowledge worker as all PIMs will be enriched by the notions shared here. I fully endorse this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars systems and information are Intertwingled 30 December 2014
By Dalia R. Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Peter Morville takes the reader by the hand and brings them along this journey to see how information and systems connect and mix together. His writing is accessible and takes care to make complex ideas understandable. Anyone interested to tell better stories about information will be helped by reading and thinking about what Morville says. I especially think library and information school students, librarians, archivists, information architects should read this book. Many professions want to use data to tell better stories and this book is a tool guide to help think through important ideas to help do exactly that.
4.0 out of 5 stars "Everything is deeply Intertwingled" 27 May 2016
By Brand3n - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Intertwingled is a good read by a thoughtful and successful info architect grappling with the meaning of the work he performs. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's a not an instruction manual and it doesn't provide many specific methods for the practice of info architecture. There's other resources for this. Rather it is a deeply personal consideration of the discipline of information architecture recontextualized within the broader sphere of systems thinking, and for that matter, life in general. The author makes many keen insights and illustrates them with personal anecdotes while slowly weaving them into a larger philosophical tapestry of interconnectedness. My only complaint is that some the examples in the last chapter about health, fitness, cycling, and diet--though I agree with his viewpoint on these issues--seemed a bit tangential and thus didn't drive home the points he was intending to illustrate as effectively as I would have hoped. All in all, a good read for all info architects and systems thinkers. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars About so much and nothing particular, in a good way 20 August 2015
By M. Forr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Peter follows an interesting thread in his book. That thread is how there are threads through everything we do and how unrelated things aren't really unrelated.

This is a great, relaxing, Sunday afternoon kind of read.

2.0 out of 5 stars More philosophical than fact 9 January 2015
By M. Sloan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I couldn't make it through this book. I bought it based on a few reviews and previous works, but the reviews describing it as a collection of meandering anecdotes is where my thoughts fall as well. If you are looking for a philosophical book without hard evidence or solid examples, it might prove an interesting read, but for me it was just not what I thought it would be and only made it through 2 chapters before skimming the rest. Even from a philosophical read standpoint, it really lacked a narrative thread 2/5 of the way through.
