Why is this a "treasure" when it is way out of date?

1. There is no mention of the key or reverse arguments.
2. Worse, it describes as normal practice, methods that the key
  and reverse arguments makes obsolete.
3. There's no mention of sorted() or of the differences between sort()
  and sorted().
