Et tu, Brute?

There are so many pirates and plagiarists and tricksters and cheats and imposters in this funny font forging industry that it is not easy to distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys. For instance, in the new German book "Adrian Frutigers Buch der Schriften" (Marix Verlag, Wiesbaden 2005) written by Adrian Frutiger (correct?), the typefaces designed by Frutiger are described by Frutiger (correct?). See below the thumb-scans of the book pages 268 and 269: "Schriften von Adrian Frutiger". But here I also see fonts not designed by Adrian Frutiger. Is Frutiger the author of this book which bears his name as the author on the title-page? If not, who wrote this book and who slapped Frutiger's name on the title-page? But in case that it should be true that Frutiger wrote and typeset this book as stated on the copyright page of this book, why does he claim to be the designer of fonts which he did not design?
