Looking more closely at the designs, they're not recent...they're from the late 1990s. The most current image I saw was from 2004 (it's now 6/2010). That's ancient history as far as graphic design goes. There's absolutely no background info on the samples either...no context whatsoever. The biggest faux pas though is that upon closer inspection, 90% of the type is boxy san serif display type...over and over and over again. You'd think no other style existed. It just gets old. While much of the design in the book is interesting, the typography...not so much. So buy this book for the design aspect but not necessarily for type inspiration.
I'd love to see a new "Type Treatments II" with a larger cross-section of typographic usage, and more recent examples.
