For me I found this book too disjointed. I am an absolute novice and the structure of the book I found to be confused. It talks about fairly complex issues early on when all I wanted to know was how to get the thing started so I could experiment with it.

You wanna learn python? First off, even though there are new versions (a.k.a. 3.2 and such), you honestly will wont to learn 2.7 for its vast libraries that are still supported, but not updated. This book gives you ALL the basics, It's a fantastic book! But I wish it went into a bit more details and possibly had more examples, but overall, this is EXACTLY what you need to start with.

I've been programming for 15 years, but never Python, so I was looking for an introduction to the language. I felt like I was reading a book by a novice. With several concepts (composite dictionary keys, regular expressions), he made it clear he hasn't really used them or really found a use for them. This might be a book for someone learning to program, but if you've programmed before, don't expect to get a solid understanding of Python fundamentals. Expect the hard parts to be glossed over.

This was a fantastic book that is really easy to read. The author provides a lot of code examples which are helpful, but the best parts of the book are the clear definitions and explanations of (maybe seemingly) complex concepts. It's perfect for a beginner. Before this book, concepts like Object Oriented Programming and dicts were really confusing, but after this book I was able to understand them much more easily. I highly recommend it. It was well worth $3!

I just got an RPi and it came with several programming languages. I had never used, or even been exposed to python. this was the first book I read on the subject. I tried most of the examples, and, in the end, was able to move forward to more complex tasks.

I found this to be a nice and quick introduction to Python.

For someone experimenting with Python for the first time, this can be a good starter. There are formatting issues at times, however I was looking at the book as a kick starter into Python concepts, so that didn't bother me a lot.

It's been helpful. I learn by doing more than just reading so I tend to go to google first for things especially since I use multiple computers, but flipping through the kindle version now and then has helped me learn more.
