IMHO, that approach gets you into what you're going to need in terms of
gtk+ programming - everything from signals, callbacks, gtk's object
structure and how it implements it, and trapping & using gdk events. And
saying that it spends half the book at that is a bit harsh :) It's also
got a fairly comprehensive overview of GNOME's api and the general gtk
api/widget system. This, along with the more detailed but undescriptive
API docs, is more than enough to get people right up to speed, methinks.
Then again, the wrox book is bigger, and probaby spreads into other
relevant, but unrelated, areas. Horses for courses.
