Yes.  I just read it and it has excellent Perspective Broker examples in
chapters 5 & 6 which got me to a flying start recently.   Obviously
you'll want to read the online docs too.

It doesn't cover twisted.web and nevoew very well because the API was
still shifting about then, but the rest seems pretty good.  It was
published in 2006.

All the building blocks are documented, but I don't know of a really
good online example using all the security features fully.  Hopefully
someone else will respond here and tell me I'm wrong. :-)

You used "safe" and "assume" in the same sentence.  Next you'll be
saying "should" ;-)

But yes, all the bits are there - you'll need to plug them together though.
