I believe this book is the best introduction to information science available at present. It tackles both the philosophical basis and the most important branches, and it is based on solid knowledge about the contemporary literature of the field. If students have the knowledge provided by this introduction, this would be a fine basis on which to go further with specific problems. --Birger Hjørland, Royal School of Library and Information Science, Copenhagen, Denmark
I have no doubts that, for many years to come, this wonderful book will serve as one of the very best places for people to start to make a difference. --Jonathan Furner, Department of Information Studies, UCLA, USA
