I expect not. The book appears to have been written at the time of 3.1. 
  There was no new syntax (but some stdlib improvements) in 3.2.  3.3 
brought an improved unicode implementation and 'yield from'.  You likely 
do not need to know about 'yield from' unless you use coroutines with 
the 3.4 asyncio module. I expect nearly all the beginner code in the 
book should still work.
