Abstract:

"A decade after the publication of what has become a cult guidebook to understanding, Richard Saul Wurman, in this expanded & updated volume, gives clarity to confusion with new maps for navigating through a stream of bytes which leave us inundated with data but starved for the tools & patterns that give them meaning. In reality there has not been an information explosion, but rather an explosion of non-information, or stuff that simply doesn't inform."--Jacket.
