Alex White: Listening to Type

Similar to White’s Thinking in Type, his latest Listening to Type is an excellent guide for improving typography. His writing is clear and his examples are comprehensive. Unfortunately, the design of this book, like his previous one, is way too busy. It feels like I am reading a webpage with lots of ads surrounding it. With layouts like these, I am not sure if I should stop reading the main content to look at the examples or I should just focus on the content and go back to the examples afterward. I wish the design was simpler.
