The centerpiece of the book is a couple of Q&A's with Rand on the topic of how to teach graphic design. They present a glimpse of his contentious personality and a few of his ideas.
There are a few brief essays at the end of the book by former students of his, which add a touch of first person reminiscence about the man.
Finally there is a useful list of recommended reading about design, typography and art. It is unclear which books were recommended by Rand in his classes and which were separately compiled by the editor, Michael Kroege, the list seems to contain both.
Well, i think I got what I paid for -- I never stopped thinking the book was pretty. Kroege makes the most of a couple of brief interviews, illuminating points with graphic examples.
A side note: This was published shortly after his death, and was not written BY Paul Rand, but is an extremely important resource anyway, containing much of what he said.
