I got that book and to be honest, didn't find it very useful due to it
being a nutshell book - it can't (due to size) go into much detail in
each section and so I found the online documentation/tutorials were a
better resource.

A more detailed Twisted book would be awesome though! I think
pragprog.com share 50% of the profits with authors (and do ebooks and
betas too), so maybe someone might be interested in writing it :)

Of course noone would complain about a community edited book like what
the Django project has, either. :)
