This is mentioned in the book, by the way:

It's called once for each row that is selected. It is synchronous,
meaning that it only returns when it has finished calling your callback.

This is documented:

It is a libsigc++ callback object:
(though that's for libsigc++ 1.2, which is used by gtkmm 2.2)

"A Gtk::TreeModel::Path is essentially a potential node. It is a
location on a model that may or may not actually correspond to a node on
a specific model."

There is no point in examining the selected rows before the user has had
a chance to select them.

Hopefully it makes sense now.
