After going through the pages, I became confused about what makes a good design. There's a lot of variety but it's hard to find specific examples that really caught my attention, and this is coming from a "best of the best" book. There aren't a lot of page-pausing moments for a book that's 352-page thick.
I would recommend going for the single "best of" volumes instead because you can get more up-to-date content. If you really want to buy this, you should at least browse through it first.
