Err, yes but I am highly biased - I still get a couple of hundred
dollars in royalties each quarter :-)

The main thing it does NOT cover is .NET.  I think almost
everything else still works and is relevant if you are working
on Windows and/or working with COM.  There is some minor 
'inaccuracy creep' i.e. one or two directories in Python 2.3 
installation are different to Python 1.5.2, and of course
Mark has continued to add more demos and utilities to Pythonwin.

Not as far as I know; bits in several other books but no major
alternative books for Python on Windows.
