Not really because I have no ambitions to write "The Complete Livecode 
Handbook".

What I do have ambitions to write are:

1. A guide for teachers on how to use Livecode as a tool to author (RAD) 
delivery tools
for content delivery and reinforcement.

2. A book to help teacher teach an entry-level programming course to 
Primary-level children.

Neither of which will extend to LCB or widgets.

If you are looking for a new Danny Goodman look elsewhere.
