The exact wording is:

"Distribution of the work or derivative of the work in any standard
(paper) book form is prohibited".

This is not a non-commercial restriction, which I would personally find vexing.

It is a restriction on book publishing, which is unfortunate but cool
with me; I have no plans to publish books, although I might want to
make unbound paper printouts to give to my students, but that's
allowed :-)
