There's a PDF of the 1.8 documentation available at
<http://www.gnucash.org/docs.phtml>.  The overall content hasn't changed all
that much for 2.0 (or 2.2), so it's still quite useful.

I've added support for 'make pdf' target to the gnucash-docs build files, and
while it basically generates a PDF, it looks horrible ... I wouldn't want to
distribute it.

It'd be great if someone could figure out the incantations to turn docbook
into good-looking PDF and contribute them, ideally as a patch against the
docs of <http://svn.gnucash.org/repo/gnucash-docs/trunk/>.

The Tutorial and Concepts Guide started off as a book, as I understand it.
I've not heard any plans like those recently.
