You're welcome to buy this Kindle edition, but do note that none of the authors get any royalties, as this is open source documentation. You can read the same contents for free at docs.python.org (with daily updates).

I read this book after having read about 160 pages of the O'Reilly "Learning Python". I found Guido van Rossum's introduction to be very well-written. His examples showed some interesting things that "Learning Python" hadn't, such as the pickle library, and he included a clear but brief treatment of Python exception handling. Possibly not the best for a complete beginner, but if you've seen a little Python before, it does a wonderful job. Be aware that this text is available as part of the standard Python documentation, but having the hard copy is friendlier to the eyes and part of the profit goes back to open source.

No surprise as everything is given on Web. However it is well written and very helpful, particularly off line, so it deserves extra credit. After that a little hint - put what you have read there in practice on your Ipad. Test it using Pythonista, really brilliant app, sort of "mini-Matllab" to do both calculations and graph the results. I am enjoying testing the Python book on my IPad, I am sure you find it interesting too. Many thanks to Python developers for tools, examples and comprehensive documentations.

The world of Python is vast. However, this book has a lot of the core knowledge that you need. It is very well written and their is hardly a paragraph that is not useful. However, be prepared to read the text many times before you fully understand it.

As they say in the product literature, this is a repackage of the FREE Python Tutorial from the Python website.

https://docs.python.org/2.7/tutorial/index.html

Nicely repackaged, but it is available FREE.

Pretty good tutorial. Shows syntax structure of commands and statements. Also gives examples. Very low cost way to have such information at your fingertips. Would like to see stuff about IDLE included.

There is something wrong with the file for this book in the Android version. I purchased it last night. It crashes on mu Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and in my Google (LG) Nexus 4. It works on the PC Kindle App. Upon re-installing the Kindle Apps and clearing caches and all data for the App., the problem remains unchanged. First time ever it has happened to me with any Kindle Book (over 300 of them). So, I hate it even though I have not been able to read it, unfair? Maybe....
