subjects Richard Saul Wurman writes about Information management
Richard Saul Wurman's profile Which is why Richard Saul Wurman, 64, an architect, author, and conference organizer, has created "Understanding USA." The result of a yearlong crusade on Wurman's part, this 324-page, graphic-rich book is designed to provide Americans with the right information, in the right format, in the right amount. This is a book with a mission: to enable people to grasp the world they live in -- including everything from the electoral process and the federal debt to health care and poverty -- quickly, easily, and entertainingly.

Wurman enlisted the help of 12 "information architects" (a term that he coined), who worked with him to produce 13 chapters of wide-ranging material. He also generated support from a list of blue-chip backers: America Online, General Motors, Hearst Communications, Intel, the Markle Foundation, Mattel, Ovations/United HealthCare, SmartPlanet, Steelcase, USWeb/CKS, and Xerox. With substantial backing from these organizations, Wurman was able to structure the $1 million project so that the book is downloadable for free on the Web (www.understandingusa.com). It is also for sale in hard-copy form at Barnes & Noble bookstores, on Amazon.com, and through Ingram Book Co.
