Publisher's Summary

This is a book about everything. Or, to be precise, it explores how everything is connected from code to culture. We think we're designing software, services, and experiences, but we're not. We are intervening in ecosystems. Until we open our minds, we will forever repeat our mistakes. In this spirited tour of information architecture and systems thinking, Peter Morville connects the dots between authority, Buddhism, classification, synesthesia, quantum entanglement, and volleyball. In 1974 when Ted Nelson wrote, "everything is deeply intertwingled," he hoped we might realize the true potential of hypertext and cognition. This book follows naturally from that.

Awesome intertwingled tree of insights

I loved this book - Peter Morville's self deprecating, understated humour cajoling and bowling us through dimensions, layers, systems, interactions, causes, consequences, responsibilities, opportunities and freedoms - a veritable masterpiece of insights and connections that will leave me reflecting for weeks and likely changed for ever. I highly recommend this irreverent, thoughtful, thought-provoking and important book to anyone interested in ideas, society, ecology and the future of all that could ever have relevance to our own existence.

Mostly half baked ideas.

The author gives a superficial glance at a number of topics, and doesn't investigate anything to a level of depth I found useful.

The author borrows the worst from Nassim Nicholas Taleb, read his books instead.

The author brings up potential problems with technology, but makes the mistake of thinking that only slowing down or reversing course is the solution. For further thinking on these topics, I recommend David Deutsch "The Beginning of Infinity".

Some good lessons, but...

All in all, this book was somewhat valuable. There were many good lessons, but it all feels a bit jumbled and lacking cohesion. The narrator is also insanely robotic in his de-liv-er-y.

? Not what you expect

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is no game changer. Mostly, at best a few anectodes and self referential can kickings...

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

Not a fan of narrator or the structure but was enjoyable none the less. Aimed at info architects but system thinkers would enjoy.
