I would help write part of a book.  I'm sure others would, too.  But  
none of us have the time to write a whole book ourselves.

Who could coordinate such an effort?

What format would be used (LaTeX, etc.)?

How would consistency be maintained across sections?

I think these are not insurmountable obstacles, and a free, printable  
PDF howto manual (as opposed to a reference book like the NumPy book)  
in the spirit of the Lerning ... O'Reilly books is very, very  
important.  The tutorials on the wiki are a good place to start, but  
in the end, people want a book.  I know I prefer books to online  
documentation when I am really diving into something.
