Nervous? Here's why: too much data, not enough meaning. Twelve years ago, Richard Saul Wurman identified the problem and pointed the way to the solution, teaching -- and showing -- how to illuminate the meaning in any information. Now, he's completely updated his classic Information Anxiety to reflect 12 years' worth of revolutionary changes -- not least, the Internet. Still way ahead of the curve. Still beautifully written (and designed). Still utterly invaluable to everyone who communicates. An even more important book than ever.

A decade after publication of what has become a cult guidebook to understanding the information age, this expanded and updated edition gives clarity to confusion with new maps for navigating through a stream of data that leaves us starved for the tools and patterns that give data meaning. Discussion touches on aesthetic considerations versus making information understandable, the pervasiveness of advertising, bartering and conversation, and communication in the work environment, with humorous asides and b&w cartoons. Wurman is a publisher and a fellow of the American Institute of Architects. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
