Despite being rather obsolete and not groundbreaking by any means, the book is still a fairly good source of the summarized observation related to looks (across different spheres). On the other side, its obsoleteness provides a point of reference of the "static" phenomena vs. social engineering-induced ones - you can compare what is still actual and what has been long gone (racial preference, etc.).
The author sourced hundreds of papers to paraphrase and unify the available findings.
