I've been a developer for a while now and I wanted to myself introduced to Python. I picked up this book considering it's size - thinking it would cover a lot of concepts. I was "kinda" right. Yes, it is a big book, but it does feel quite wordy at times, though, at times, it helped me reinforce the concepts previously mentioned.

Many code samples compare between 2.x and 3.x, which was good for someone who's already been doing Python, but for a newbie like me, I just stuck to the 3.x examples and concepts.

It would have been way better if the examples would have been progressive - as in, start with something small and actually build some project(s) through the course of the book. Or maybe ask readers to do this through the code questions at the end of the chapters.

What I also found missing was the total lack of unit testing your code, which in my opinion is critical for any kind of programming.

Tyk tung bog med programmeringseksempler i python. Ikke ret god. Til gengæld er der "morsomme" kapitelundertitler og citat fra dokumentationen for pythons sort at den har supernatural performance, men ingen diskussion af om det fx er en 'stable sort'. Dumpet.

What a disappointment. A very long, tedious and random collection of python programming examples with no rhyme or reason whatsoever. I think they were trying out a new idea for an authoritative language book which didn't end up panning out at all. A big pile of wasted paper.

Very much in line with my learning style, and consistent in approach with other O'Reilly books. A good introduction to Python programming, especially for someone with some programming experience in other languages. It contains plenty of short code examples, sufficient theory, and a number of more in depth projects to help the reader move from learning new techniques to applying the lessons in the context of larger projects. Perhaps a bit too long, as it is a hefty book to carry around.
