This text is concerned with the meaning of information and what individuals do with it. It deals with the impact, and problems of overload, stimulation and craving for information; and analytical and synthetic approaches to retrieval and management of information are discussed.
This book takes a very broad view of information, and considers it as a phenomenon in its own right, rather than the technology for handling it. It is very much concerned with the meaning of information, and what we as individuals do with it.
