Detailed Description

A Book encapsulates all of the GnuCash data, it is the place where
all GnuCash entities (Transaction, Split, Vendor, Invoice...), are
stored. You'll notice that all of the constructors for those entities
need a book to be associated with.

The most common way to get a book is through the book property in the
Session class, that is, create a session that connects to some storage,
such as through 'my_session = Session('file:my_books.xac')', and access
the book via the book property, ''

If you would like to create a Book without any backing storage, call the
Book constructor without any parameters, 'Book()'. You can later merge
such a book into a book with actual store by using merge_init.
