This is a book that I wish I had written! My weathered copy of this book is packed with highlights, scribbles in the margins, and dogeared pages. It's not an easy read (some passages I had to read 3 times) but it's fascinating for anyone serious about information architecture and how laws of perception and understanding should drive our IA designs.
