"Jones and Teevan have put together a fabulous resource on the subject of managing personal information. With the excellent contributions of their notable guest authors, they look at all angles of the problem of keeping track of everyone and everything in their lives. They've done a thorough investigation and it shows that we have a long journey ahead to handle the torrent of emails, calendars, contacts, bookmarks, and everything else that deluges us regularly. This book will become the seminal reference for anyone thinking about how we solve this critical problem."―Jared M. Spool, User Interface Engineering

Top Customer Reviews

By Jaime Teevan on October 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
I edited the book Personal Information Management with William Jones, so my opinion of it is, not surprisingly, glowing. Below is the table of contents, to help you make a more informed purchasing decision. Each chapter is written by one or more leading researchers in the chapter's subject area, and is worth reading independent of the book. However, the book also holds together well as a whole, with many common themes, and even common characters, being woven throughout.

1. Introduction
William Jones (University of Washington)
Jaime Teevan (Microsoft Research)

Part I. Understanding Personal Information Management

2. How People Find Personal Information
Jaime Teevan (Microsoft Research)
Robert Capra (University of North Carolina)
Manuel Pérez-Quiñones (Virginia Tech)

3. How People Keep and Organize Personal Information
William Jones (University of Washington)

4. How People Manage Information over a Lifetime
Catherine C. Marshall (Microsoft)

5. Naturalistic Approaches for Understanding PIM
Charles M. Naumer (University of Washington)
Karen E. Fisher (University of Washington)

Part II. Solutions for Personal Information Management

This book is well over due. The subject of PIM is still new but really important to all of us who are overwhelmed by the flow of information through our personal and professional lives. Jones and Teevan do a good job of bringing together a host of opinions and approaches. I can't wait for Jones's own book in the subject to come out!

This was recommended for my electronic/digital records class for graduate school. It's written in an easy to read format for the layman or the new student. There is a running explanation/scenario of the planning of a birthday party, which is good for understanding unfamiliar concepts.

It also discusses at length and in detail the different types of information management and could really help someone understand their own personal information management (to steal the book's title), as well as how other people manage and handle their information.
