Maybe "outdated" is the wrong word. What I like better about TikZ/pgf is 
the fact that there exists one(!) compendium for the whole thing, 
whereas I have to look at a lot of different places to find the docs for 
pstricks, since it is not one package but a whole collection. Apart from 
your book I have not yet found a document giving a overview over the 
whole lot of packages, something like a frame for all those docs.
But of course I see that this is due to the nature of PSTricks. :)

Cheers, Johannes
