  • Description
    Python’s simplicity lets you become productive quickly, but this often means you aren’t using everything it has to offer. With this hands-on guide, you’ll learn how to write effective, idiomatic Python code by leveraging its best—and possibly most neglected—features. Author Luciano Ramalho takes you through Python’s core language features and libraries, and shows you how to make your code shorter, faster, and more readable at the same time.

    Many experienced programmers try to bend Python to fit patterns they learned from other languages, and never discover Python features outside of their experience. With this book, those Python programmers will thoroughly learn how to become proficient in Python 3.

    This book covers:

    • Python data model: understand how special methods are the key to the consistent behavior of objects
    • Data structures: take full advantage of built-in types, and understand the text vs bytes duality in the Unicode age
    • Functions as objects: view Python functions as first-class objects, and understand how this affects popular design patterns
    • Object-oriented idioms: build classes by learning about references, mutability, interfaces, operator overloading, and multiple inheritance
    • Control flow: leverage context managers, generators, coroutines, and concurrency with the concurrent.futures and asyncio packages
    • Metaprogramming: understand how properties, attribute descriptors, class decorators, and metaclasses work

    Fantastic for the intermediate Python developer

    Fluent Python is exactly the book I was looking for. As a long time Python developer, I was looking for a book that went further in-depth to the special, but rarely used features that help write cleaner, better python code. Luciano Ramalho has written a huge book that covers every aspect of Python, such as:

    * In depth coverage of the built in data structures
    * Higher order and functional style programming
    * Nuts and bolts of Objects in python
    * Sequences! Lots and lots about sequences, itera...

    okay if you need to reference offline

    python.org has well defined documentations and worthwhile to read as it has clear and concise info on every aspect of the language, sample working codes, better than any text for any user level

    Q:Does this particular edition is an imported one? Does it has colored pages?
    A:no, it's an Indian print edition and doesn't have any colored pages. IMHO, this book requires any colored pages. The contents of this book is excellent and is certainly worth the price you pay for it.

    Q:i this for beginers?
    A:Not for absolute beginners. You will have problem following along. Better take a basic intro course before reading this book as it skips basics and directly jumps into advance concepts.
