I like this as a general guide to novel structure. However many resources I've read warn against getting too locked into a single script or pattern like this. Sometimes you need to save the climax for the last two pages, and sometimes you need the action to start on the first page (and fill in 'setup' stuff later).
Little Spines is a yearly publication containing stories and poems from the Creative Writing students from RMIT. My aim was to create a contemporary, stylish publication on a low budget. The style of binding I used (Japanese Stab binding) has an abstract resemblance to an actual human spine visually, and also shares many of its characteristics; being quite ornate and fragile, yet extremely crucial, and vigilantly holds everything together.
