The basic thesis of the book is that the core problems of designing multimedia information are amenable to the same concepts and disciplines that have been devised in software engineering. Furthermore it is not the technology of multimedia (compact disk, Internet, etc.) but the systematic structuring of information that really matters. This concept provides the focus for the problem-solving approach of the text.
