The only reason this book didn't get a fifth star is because it's a bit out of date. In this age of PDAs, Blackberry and web enhanced cell phones an assistant HAS to go in with a strong working knowledge of modern technology. (If you don't, go out and buy a "Complete Idiots Guide" or a "Dummies Guide".) When the book was published in 1993 the internet was a relatively new invention (thank you, Mr. Gore) and hadn't reached its resourcefulness that it has today. Thus, Taylor can't provide the web-based resources available for assistants (such as ifilmpro.com). But by all means, DO NOT skip this book simply because it doesn't have the current technology mumbo-jumbo, buy this book because it gives you an invaluable look into how to run an efficient industry office. I plan to keep my copy in my desk, when I get one.
NB: I highly recommend buying a book such as "Reading for a Living" which outlines how to "cover" scripts in further detail (Taylor's book does any excellent job providing a starting point). This is a key aspect of this job, no matter who you work for, and one of the biggest responsibilities but unfortunately not many have experience doing it or feel comfortable with their coverage writing.
