Up on my bookshelf, covered with dust, I have a large 3-ring binder with the IM logo and the title "Strategies for Developing High-Performance Documentation". It's the materials I received when I took IM training in the early 90s. Although I found the training quite useful and have used their concepts and techniques ever since, I haven't looked at this binder in years. Do you think it would be useful to you?

Okay, last attempt at searching for this. I'm still getting great responses but they don't address what I want, so let me try one more time to be specific.

I'm looking for a way to learn Information Mapping, as it was developed in the 1960s (and beyond, to the extent it's been improved), WITHOUT going through the "official" Information Mapping company.

I'm preferably looking for either a book, a DVD, or some kind of digital media that will help me learn the techniques of the system. (Books *other than* by Robert Horn, as I have the two main ones and I don't have the patience for them.)
