    This is a good book to get someone used to programming by way of Python. It walks through basic principles of Python with a lot of examples and references. There are some typos and sometimes the examples don't work out. At that point you just have to move on. Good book for learning the basics and a beginner.

    Good for beginner programmers This is a good book to get someone used to programming by way of Python. As the title says, it's a book for beginners, not intermediate or advanced programmers.

    Amazing introductory Python book. It worth every pennies! I took all the Udemy courses of Jason Cannon. Great author and great teacher. Thank you for your wonderful teaching methods.

    Good intro A very good way to get your feet wet in programming with python very simple and to the point if you’re unsure if you want to venture into python this is a good book to get as it’s short and simple. If you’re looking for advanced stuff look elsewhere.

    Lots of typos, still good for what it sets out to be. Helpful foundational material, although there are better YouTube tutorials.

    Python programing A good book not for absolute beginners. It contains good examples in each chapter. One good thing is it has links at the end of every chapter such is very useful

    Straight to the point Good book, easy introduction to the basic of python. Clear and easy with load of examples and exercises. Maybe a section on object oriented ....

    Excelente para enterarse de los primeros pasos con la sintaxis del lenguaje. Nada fuera de lo común, pero lo suficiente como para entender los lineamientos del lenguaje.

    Great examples! Great basics & example programs! Easy to follow. Extra links are helpful and the challenges are not too difficult, but allow for hands-on guided learning.

    What a lovely cover in this edition! I bought the 2016 version and the cartoonic snake in the cover was replaced by a real one. Sort of pity. The book is very easy to read and give confidence to computer noobs. The content is interpreted very clearly and make reader have desire to finish it quickly. Finally some advice, the help command should be taught earlier.

    According to Goodreads, I read this book on December 10, 2015. And according to Goodreads, at the time I gave it a 5-star rating, but no review. I guess that makes it easier to update since there's no review to amend. Revisiting it some 5 years later, I'm a little reluctant to place it at that same level but I think it still makes a decent 4-star intro book. What do you look for in an intro book?

Not just programming, but any topic? Let's make a quick list. Easy for outsiders to understand? Check. Interesting exercises that aren't over challenging for beginners? Check. No mistakes? Well, the examples with the talking cat don't escape backslashes, which I believe is the preferred practice in Python, but I guess that's good enough. Check. Reasonable coverage of material a beginner should learn (data types, loops, conditionals...)? Check. Okay, so it checks all the right boxes, where could it improve? It's not fundamentally flawed but it seems a bit overpriced for what it delivers. I think I paid $22 for this in 2015. That's a pretty small investment to get started in a new programming language. However, it's pretty steep for this particular book given that books in that price range typically deliver maybe twice the content. Compare this with Introduction to Networking by Charles Severance, a book about the same size and aimed and a similar technical level, which I purchased this year for $10 (and arguably contains more content). I'm not suggesting the cost should be set on word count (more likely the opposite!), but that was a general feeling I had reading through it this second time. This is subjective, but I seemed to always be aware of the font size, the feeling of excessive white space padding, and at once the sense that content was too mashed together without room to breathe. Maybe another font or formatting tool would help, but the design felt closer to a tech manual than my other tutorial books. Also, it would probably be wise to put the problem solutions at the end of the book, not immediately following the question... or at least on the following page. It takes away the challenge when the solution is within range of eye drift. These aren't critical flaws, but definitely room for improvement on another edition. There are tons of free resources on programming, especially on Python as it's one of the most popular languages of the last 10 years. If you don't mind the price tag, it's a good place to get started.

    Good source of information If you are a very beginner, this book will be great! If you already have some experience with python(my case) you'll miss something. It's a good asset for your knowledge, I recommend! Good source of information If you are a very beginner, this book will be great!

    It was a very quick read for someone experienced in other programming languages. It was just an introduction and was exactly what I was looking for. If you're already familiar with object-oriented or functional programming, this should be a very quick read and give the push you'd want to get started programming in this language. Would have liked it to cover a bit about Google App Engine, but since it wasn't advertised as doing that, no stars withheld for not doing it.

    Got My Feet Wet This is not a book to just sit down and read. It has many examples and problems for you to practice coding with Python. If you want a good starting place then I recommend this book. Jason Cannon knows his stuff inside and out and sideways too! Take your time and learn.

    Covers everything nicely at an introductory level Definitely worth it and you get a few helpful tricks along the way. Doesn't really go very deep but a good primer and decent basic reference.

    Easy to understand Easy to follow. One can learn something new even he has some experiences in python. The examples are concise and the questions after chapters all have solutions.
