Information Foraging Theory: Adaptive Interaction with Information, by Peter Pirolli (buy)A thorough discussion of information foraging and information scent by the inventor of these concepts. As the book title indicates, this is a rather theoretical book: figuring out the implications for your company's Internet strategy is left as an exercise for the reader. But this is the ultimate source if you want to understand why the Web works the way it does and why users behave the way they do. Probably the most important book ever published about Web design (even though it's not about Web design!).

I've just gotten used to the academic tone of the book and am fascinated by the examples. This is definitely an information-rich book! Who would like to meet to discuss information foraging or anything UX related? Let me know by replying to this thread. Thanks!
