Yes, indeed - please will Wolfram pull together the 6.0 documentation, 
combine it with those parts of the 5.2 book that are still valid (most 
of it) and create an up-to-date version of the Mathematica book! I 
agree, that too many trees would be consumed to print the thing, so it 
would only be available electronically. However it is necessary to have 
well thought out continuous prose to put features into their correct 
context.
