I'm sure I'm not the only information architect who was tantalized at an early age by the structure of Choose Your Own Adventure books (which, to my amazement, seem to be entirely out of print). Here's a very nice interactive map of the structure of the first one I ever read, Edward Packard's The Third Planet From Altair, which predates the series itself (the edition I remember is the hardcover).

No, no you're not. I loved those things... a whole stack of 'em are probably still at my parents' house. Of course, I remember cheating quite a bit, reverse engineering the books so I wouldn't get killed. There was one where you HAD to have a "negative encounter" right at the beginning in order to win at the end, something about a poisonous tomato or some such thing.
