  • Description

    Google and YouTube use Python because it's highly adaptable, easy to maintain, and allows for rapid development. If you want to write high-quality, efficient code that's easily integrated with other languages and tools, this hands-on book will help you be productive with Python quickly -- whether you're new to programming or just new to Python. It's an easy-to-follow self-paced tutorial, based on author and Python expert Mark Lutz's popular training course.

    Each chapter contains a stand-alone lesson on a key component of the language, and includes a unique Test Your Knowledge section with practical exercises and quizzes, so you can practice new skills and test your understanding as you go.

    You'll find lots of annotated examples and illustrations to help you get started with Python 3.

    • Learn about Python's major built-in object types, such as numbers, lists, and dictionaries
    • Create and process objects using Python statements, and learn Python's general syntax model
    • Structure and reuse code using functions, Python's basic procedural tool
    • Learn about Python modules: packages of statements, functions, and other tools, organized into larger components
    • Discover Python's object-oriented programming tool for structuring code
    • Learn about the exception-handling model, and development tools for writing larger programs
    • Explore advanced Python tools including decorators, descriptors, metaclasses, and Unicode processing

    Book is bulky 1700 pages

    The confusion of Python programmers to move from 2.7 to 3.X is reflected in the size of this book. The previous edition of the same book ( which is focused on 2.X) is less than half of this book.

    I felt that the chapters have been elaborated quite a lot. There are great number of examples. If you are a quick man, you will be able to zip through the code snippets.

    I like the book - but I take away a star because it is supposed to to a book for the learners and does not do justice to the name...

    Super!

    This book is one of the best for leaning Python from scratch. Requires little to no programming experience. The only negative is its size. The book is huge, though written very lightly and effectively. May demotive the faint hearted.

    Good book for novice

    I received this book with clean and safe bundle. It was delivered 2 days ahead the scheduled date.

    This is really good book for who wants to move from version 2.x to 3.x.

    It will be very useful if you have already experience in any other scripting language (ex: PERL).
