Information Today
Information Entrepreneurship: Information Services Based on the Information Lifecycle definitely presents interesting ideas. Fowler notes in her introduction that the book addresses overall theories, not specific solutions. If you are an independent information professional, you may get fresh ideas about expanding your career. The ideas are also applicable for those in an organization who are involved in devising information management systems, although Fowler suggests hiring a consultant to help. While the book is brief, it has plenty of noteworthy concepts.
