I think that if a book on GTK+ is written, GNOME should be included. 
After all, it's not as if they were separate, GNOME is built on GTK+. 
To program for GNOME you need to know GTK+, and if you use GTK+ for
your programs you probably want to do GNOME as well.  Hard core GTK+
coders can ignore the GNOME chapters if they want :-)

Besides, the GNOME docs are really quite non-existant, but they at
least made the effort to comment the functions verbosely in most
headers.  At least we don't have to read (and understand) the actual
source code.
