25 pages of magazine covers & spreads
The author's opinions about the state of the magazine industry are pretty standard (print is dead! long live print!) and not at all surprising. He does get into some of the lesser-known niche magazines out there in the US & Europe, and even some of the even lesser lesser-known ones from other places (South Africa, Japan), but most of this book is just ... pictures. Pictures of interesting layouts, sure, and some really great covers, but in the end, it's nothing graphic designers and magazine art editors haven't seen before.
It's a decent enough book, but do yourself a favor and wait for the paperback version.
