  This reference describes the interfaces to the most common set of
  basic Zope objects.  This reference is useful while writing DTML,
  Perl, and Python scripts that create and manipulate Zope objects.

     This section needs a Table of Contents too.

     The reference describes nearly nothing when you don't know the solution! 
     Examples are absolutely necessary.

     i agree.

     Strongly disagree.  This is a reference, not a tutorial or explanatory text.

     A reference doesn't contain explanatory text?

     Do any of these classes inherit anything from anything else?
     Why is ZClass absent?

     Since many of the API objects/methods have no examples elsewhere in
     The Zope Book, it would be helpful to have at least one example of
     each here. If there were a single chapter of the book containing an
     organized API tutorial for all of these, the reference could remain
     a reference with no examples!
