O'Reilly seems to just read all of the available documentation and
regurgitate it in book form. The "in a nutshell" series being the
worst offender. Most of "Python in a Nutshell" tells you the same
information that you can find at http://docs.python.org, which is
probably "the web site" being referenced.
