Although not as in-depth as 'the polar bear book' by Morville and Rosenfeld, this book on IA is much more approachable, and therefore perhaps easier to introduce IA concepts to interested colleagues. Also has some tips on keeping care of yourself as you play the IA game.

This book covers a range of core concepts in the field of information architecture. It¿s packed with practical advice and is downright fun to read. This is the kind of book you can read in a few sittings.

This is a solid introduction to information architecture. No, it isn't Morville and Rosenfeld's Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, but Wodtke and Govella's book covers the essentials, does so in a friendly, non-frightening way, and is a little more portable than the polar bear book. Plus, it's actually enjoyable to read, which is a good thing in its own right.
