On the main GIMP website they had a statement regarding your concerns : "The terms of usage and rules about copying are clearly listed in the GNU General Public License."
And here is the document : http://www.gimp.org/about/COPYING ..so good luck with the book - feel free to ask for here and there, tips and tricks - I have experiance in DTP / Web design - where I use GIMP + Inkscape for all my works now ( I know also very well Photoshop, Photopaint because I've coming from $MS world ). [ The only reason because I don't do myself a book about GIMP in romanian language is the lack of time ] Also, for tips / tricks ( Inkscape + GIMP ) in romanian language - you can try http://nicubunu.ro/ or search in Google for 'Nicu Buculei gimp'.
