Okay as far as it goes

I've just started looking at this book, so I'll give it the benefit of a doubt, based on everyone else's opinions, but....
I'm interested in the use of Python as an embedded scripting language for 3d games. After a few initial experiments with Python 1.52, I decided to spend actual money on a copy of "Python: Essential Reference". I quickly looked up the subject of embedment in the index, and found----virtually nothing of any measurable worth; about a page of general commentary and tabular references, completely innocent of explanation or example source. To quote, for example:
"...on Unix, you must include the file config.c...(a comparable but more complex process is required on Windows...)..."
(Guess which O/S I'm working with.) To say that this is extremely disappointing is a polite understatement. I have the distinct impression that someone met their page quota from the publisher before they got to my area of interest.
