A review by Lynn Allardyce Irvine (Library Review, 2013, Vol. 62 Iss: 6/7) of my book "Information Services and Digital Literacy: In Search of the Boundaries of Knowing":

"Huvila’s book is a stimulating, thought- provoking analysis of contemporary information culture which challenges many accepted ideas about ‘new users’, technologies, participation and how we find and know things."

"I will borrow the phrase “complex easiness” (Huvila, 2012, p.131) albeit with a slightly different meaning from his own use, to describe the arguments and ideas in Isto Huvila’s excellent, stimulating and challenging work Information Services and Digital Literacy: in search of the boundaries of knowing."
