Depending on the sort of person you are, that may sound bad or good. It works for me, and I think that that sort of presentation works particularly well with a book about thickness, since thickness is something that demands a visceral understanding that is hard to convey with words, so you really have to show people how to get a feel for thickness by using a physical board and stones or by using a diagram, and the large colorful diagrams really do have more of an impact than normal diagrams would.
At the end of the book, there's also a list of 40 proverbs involving thickness, with a line or two of explanation of each. And there's even an index. This book was published in both hardcover and softcover; the hardcover version is called G34H.
