I found myself thinking at each chapter, "oooh. That's the kind of work I *really* want to do." I found this much easier to get through than Introduction to Cataloging and Classification or Cataloging and Classification: An Introduction both of which I tried to read on my own, as opposed to this book which I read for a class.

By including chapters on user behavior, and context about how cataloging rules and norms developed, this book manages to take this driest of subjects and make it digestible.
The information is great and very useful to me 3 years after I first read it. However it is not a book that is easy to digest. I had to read in chunks. I suggest marking passages and advice that you find important as you will come back to it at a later date.
Insanely dry and dense, making it quite hard to stick with.
