    Are you a designer, engineer, teacher, anthropologist or librarian? Well, you're in luck! Author Peter Morville, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will be helpful to people who want to find their way through the current age of information overload. Morville, begins by explaining findability and findable objects with definitions, examples, and stories. Next, the author connects animal and human navigation in natural and built environments to transmedia wayfinding in the 21st century. Then, he exposes the long now of information-seeking behavior through the hard lens of evolutionary psychology. The author continues exploring findability, findable objects, and wayfinding at the wavefront of ubiquitous computing and corporal convergence. In addition, the author next describes how findability and the Web are transforming the marketplace and reshaping the rules of marketing. He also bridges the gap between social software and the Semantic Web by placing ontologies, taxonomies, and folksonomies into context. Finally, concludes with a safari through thetangled hierarchies of artificial intelligence, irrational decision making, and human behavior. The good thing about this excellent book, is that it can show you how to combine streams of complex information to filter out only the parts you want. Furthermore, the author has made an extra effort to make this book into an unusual journey into the emerging reality that lets you find anyone or anything from anywhere at anytime.
