In general think you are wrong. Documentation, and a good handy one, is very important.
I do agree that the question of what docs to put is a difficult one.

BTW: From the www.pragsoft.com pages the particular book that Filip Van Raemdonck <mechanix@digibel.org> mentioned seems to me MS/Win related, which is why I think it wouldn't be much useful for a Debian user.
