It doesn't seem so "perfect" when the glue starts to come apart and the pages fall out... ;-)
Leaves of a perfect-bound book are glued together at the spine. The term usually refers to books in which gatherings are not stitched together at the spine, as with most hardcovers and library copies.

A magazine can be bound like a book, with a square flat edge on the spine. That is a perfect binding.
