As Usual it depends what its like and how many pages
Spiral instead of Wiro sometimes helps as does larger holes for the wiro
Spreads sort of work with wiro as long as u accept the gap in between .
Perfect binding where u allow 3mm in the backs to mill off always suffers when users break the back.
Slot or Burst Binding is a compromise -no allowance is allowed in the spine - but when you fold the section a slot about 2 mill wide (imm each side) and 10 mill along the spine is cut every 13 mills down the spine and when bound glue is forced into the slots - pages dont fall out. Cross overs still a problem
The other option may be section sewn with a drawn on cover. Sounds expensive but you may be surprised
