I may have too critical a background (been interested in typographic design for a few years), but one thing immediately struck me when I held this book in my hands: it's plain old ugly, sorry. The pages are full of obtrusive big and bold letters shouting all over the place (the chapter numbers measure no less than 5 cm), and the fancy font used for picture captions makes for decent eye-strain but not for much legibility. By reading this book, you may improve your wedding cards that you throw together using MS Office, but for a more comprehensive work on typography I'd rather recommend Bringhurst's "The Elements of Typographic Style".
