There are a few core concepts which you need to understand to use 
Twisted which the book still covers fairly well.  I would still 
recommend getting it.  However, there are tons of features in Twisted 
not covered by the book, some new, some old.  You will still need to 
supplement the book's introduction to Twisted with online API
