As the author states in the beginning of the book, the Python syntax is a little odd and it does take a little getting used to. If you have experience with other object-oriented programming languages, such as C++, Java or C#, then you will be able to quickly pick up the quirks of the Python syntax. If you have no programming experience, it is recommend that you pick up Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, 3rd Edition, by Michael Dawson first before reading this book. However I highly recommend this book. Really, I have not had this much fun with a programming book in quite some time. It is definitely worth your time!Read more ›
So, if you are totally new to programming, I do suggest you consider reading the previous book first which I also posted a review on or access other Python tutorials. The author even states in the Introduction that new comers should read the 1st book. More Python Programming gives you a treatment of exciting variety of games in about 300 pages & it does teach you a lot of Pythan syntax & structure. All I'm saying is that you may have difficulty with it. You can have the 1st book by you or go to the Python website should you
try reading this book & come across something you need more help in.
Having said that, I read both books & enjoyed them. But since I've studied programming I
took on the challenge to read the 2nd book first & then the 1st book right after that. What's my take? Well,
as this is my 1st Python book I managed to get through the Python & Pygame successfully. The 1st book delves more into the python language in which you practice with a lot of interactive programs. The 2nd book concentrates more on the gaming aspect of python which you interact with it differently.
The author gives you a nice approach to gaming. He writes clearly , explains concepts thoroughly & includes a bunch of games. You use the Pygame package to write these games. Throughout the book, you build on your gaming skills that you achieve in each chapter.Read more ›

Wish it had focused on file operations, web site operations, or networking, but it is focused on gaming. That's ok, just not what I needed.Published on October 11, 2013 by Mountainside
