Mostly theoretical, but quite interesting in terms of people's emotions regarding the need for knowledge. Chapter 3, detailing which management styles pair well with different learning styles was of particular interest.

Information is not enough. Organization is as important as content. Your market is your world. If you can't integrate, you can't operate. Size really doesn't count. It's not the what, but the how.

When you can admit that you don't know, you are more likely to ask

Did you know that "a weekday edition of THE NEW YORK TIMES contains more info. than the average person was likely to come across in a lifetime in 17th cent. England?" This is true.

This book challenges you to make sense of the information
overloading your life, including info in the form of news, magazines, TV, etc.

A good attempt to follow a truly great book. However, not as groundbreaking as its predecessor. I read both books over a long period. One chapter at a time, I recommend reading them in this manner. I took so many notes down, that I ended up deciding to buy the book. Unfortunately, its pretty impossible to find a copy of this book here in New Zealand.

I read this for a library science class, but it's really intended more for people in the work force. Even though the content is rather dated, ten years later, Wurman's ideas are still quite sound.

“I believe I’m very normal. I’m hyper-normal. I’m more normal than anyone else I know. I think my thoughts, my indulgences, my desires, my pleasures may at first appear different, but that is only because they are more normal, not because they are more esoteric.

I believe I am bored when other people are bored, only faster. I am interested when others are interested, only more interested. But I also think I’m less, rather than more, intelligent than other people.

By indulging my interests through my life, and perhaps because of rather than despite many failures, I have been able to design my life.”
