I presume by "too much" you mean "very much" rather than "inordinately" 
or "excessively".

IMHO the addition of [list off the top of my head] string methods, 
Unicode, new-style classes, generators, list comprehensions, etc etc
since 1.5 would indicate that pointing a newbie at an old book would not 
be such a good idea.
