The reason is that double-column format gets more content per page. One way to see this is to consider that the a paragraph in single-column format will waste on average half a line, while a paragraph in double-column format will waste on average one quarter of a line (half of a column).

Of course, this should matter less as paper becomes less prevalent, and is why this book is available in both single-column and double-column formats. (That said, the single-column format does need a bit of help from someone with better Latex skills than I have.)
