    One thought on “Card Sorting”

    1. The only comprehensive guide to card sorting I know of. This book is easy to read but informative and based on Donna Spencer's years of practical experience and insights from using and refining the technique. I found it extremely useful when preparing a workshop to teach card sorting to librarians.

    2. Good introduction into card-sorting, very practical with very useful excel files on the site for conducting your research and later analysing the results. A handbook for anyone that hands to conduct card-sorting with/for clients.

    3. A great introduction to card sorting, but even people with some experience will learn from this book because it's practical and well-written.

    4. Short and informativeI really like the practitioner approach. Very useful information and tips. Some case stories are a bit vague and do not really add value.

    5. Fantastic book for information architects and others involved in organizing information. I had done a few card sorts before, but learned a ton from this book about how to do them better.

    6. An excellent overview and guide to a key tool for information architects. Add the fifth star if you're working on a site with a large volume of complicated and difficult-to-categorize material.

    7. This book was excellent. I feel prepared to run a card sort now, with the ability to anticipate problems and issues as they arise.
