The book you are referring to deals with the GTK+ 1.2 API which is not
100% compatible to GTK+ 2.x. I would not recommend it any longer. The
online GTK+ tutorial is reasonably well maintained though and should
get you further. But the best way to learn GTK+ is to read code.

"Foley, van Dam, ..." is a very good book that I can recommend. Large
parts of it don't have much relevance for GIMP though.

It really depends on what you are interested in. There are some good
books on image manipulation algorithms such as the one from Gonzalez
and Woods. But you can spend years hacking on GIMP w/o having any clue
on image manipulation algorithms.
