I’m confused

A grayscale book about designing data visualizations?

I recently ordered the Designing for Data Visualizations book and was surprised to find the entire book in black and white. The previews online show the illustrations, charts and diagrams with color, yet the book is in gray-scale. It is obviously difficult to follow the entire chapter on color choices and I'm curious if this was intentional or not. Please advise.
