Mr Tschichold discusses in this work what's "beautiful" for a book. When the demonstrated result made ME, who has no interest in design, pull it off the shelf and pay the hefty price to own a copy, the author has kept his word.
Useful for reminding us of some of the core principles of typography and book design, but if all publishers agreed with the author's views, the book world would be a very boring place. I would like to see a debate between Jan Tschichold and David Carson!!
