I am a web professional, with a background in writing. As the name implies, Van Dijck's book is geared toward those with a need to know the basic ideas and practices behind IA, without requiring a great depth of knowledge. It would be useful for copywriters, designers, project managers, account managers and others who work with or must dabble in information architecture. Exhaustive it's not - I read 75% of the book in about 3 readings. But that's just about what I was looking for and it lays a framework for diving deeper in areas of personal interest. Kind of like good IA, don't you think?

Not surprisingly this book takes a visual approach to explain information architecture. The layout and design of the book is superb and there are lots of nice visuals that diagram information architecture processes. Unfortunately, there's not much to be said about the actual content of this book. I found it to be too simplistic with generalizations about the obvious (e.g. design for your users, not the business experts or developers creating the site). This book is for beginners with no background in IA or design. Try Information Architecture by Louis Rosenfeld and Peter Morville for a comprehensive overview of what IA is about--it's not as pretty though.
