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.
