I'd be surprised if the book contained facts that were severely untrue
So would I: I just said that some of the few 'facts' I had any knowledge about were mistaken. For instance, there is no need to deliberately choose, say, Adobe Garamond Pro Italic when you need it, because that style is linked to Adobe Garamond Pro Regular: it's automatically chosen when you press the 'Italic' button. Another example is the author's view that Type 1 fonts are better suited to Mac OSs than TrueType fonts: it is perhaps true that designers prefer Type 1 fonts still, that's the result of their natural conservatism (and a large library of Type 1 fonts!).

These things are not serious, and certainly don't affect the author's advice on pre-press work.
