From the title, I expected this to be a thorough reference to the standard Python modules, but instead it is a collection of sample scripts which illustrate the basic usage of the standard modules.

This is a great example of a book whose contents is much more available and accessible online. There is really no reason for this to exist in print. It goes through all of the modules in the Python Standard library, giving a brief description of each and possibly an example. That's it. You're better off just looking in the documentation online for what you need to know. Possibly useful as a reference, but nothing else.
