I think it isn't since STG is pretty much different with the G-machine
describes in the book. The original paper about Spineless Tagless
G-machine is here [1].
It is quite verbose. Recent paper "How to make a fast curry:
push/enter vs eval/apply" [2] is much smaller, but it represents more
recent state of GHC and can be read independently with the first
paper. The book from 1987 [3] is a very good and detailed overview of
the subject and it is valuable as itself, no matter how it actually
implemented now.
