I am truly surprised at the positive reviews. I bought this book based on the reviews but this book was a complete disappointment from the perspective of gaining practical wisdom that can be put into practice. It has a lot of historical and some technical information but little in the way of principles or guidance that applies to actual design. I learned less from this book than from a single chapter on type design in Robin Williams The non-designers Design book that I also bought (thank goodness)
