The highly acclaimed FontBook 4th Edition was published in 2006, so I'm just curious how relevant it is since 4 years have passed.
I realize that it is listed as one of the essential books, but I just want to make sure that it's worth my USD$99 before I pick a copy up. How often do you consult this dense resource? Do you feel it is outdated to the point where you search through fontbook.com from the get-go, bypassing the book altogether?
I will appreciate any and all thoughts.
