R. David Murray added the comment:

Indeed, the short circuit and value return behavior is described in that section just before the example.

I agree with Joel.  This is a tutorial, and part of the zen of Python is that all expressions have a boolean value.  There are very few places in python programs where it would be considered Pythonic to "cast" a value to one of the two uniquely boolean values via the Bool operator, so it is better that it *not* be mentioned in this context.
