A very readable text that focuses on information itself, which is often neglected, and it makes a very good case for managers to recognise how important this is.' – Martin Rich, Cass Business School, City University London, UK
'An extremely thorough approach that blends the technological component of the topic with the management perspective. I would happily point my students towards this book as a core text with currency and clarity.' – Hugh Preston, Aberystwyth University, UK
'I cannot wait to use this text. It teaches the fundamentals of information management and deals with the challenges that confront organisations with depth and in a holistic manner. I highly recommend it as a must-read.' – Louis Spring, University of Westminster, UK and London South Bank University, UK
'This book is a welcome addition to the information management world that puts information, rather than technology or systems, at the heart of its approach. This is increasingly the modern and relevant way. Thus, many traditional aspects are covered but from a different perspective, as well as many new and important elements, all capably structured and integrated. This book should be highly relevant for students and information practitioners, as well as being essential reading for general management, that increasingly has to deal with information, and indeed the problems posed by the poor management of information, in organisations.' – Guy Fitzgerald, Loughborough University, UK
