True but this book is fairly outdated as it uses Emacs 19 which is two major versions behind the curve.

2)  Some people like books compared to online documentation.

Some people like to learn about programs at their computers.

meant to provide an overview with detailed explanations for noobs.

As long as he doesnt mind using his computer to learn about Emacs, there are better sources than the Oreilly book.</imho>
