5.0 out of 5 stars Great Clarity, Great Info, March 28, 2012
This book is well written and provides a lot of good information.

I've gone through several Python books and this one is by far the most clearly written. For example, when Chun explain the basics of TCP/IP, sockets, servers and how Python interact with them, his explanations are vivid, concise, and extremely clear. The author strikes me as unique in his ability to state what amount to fairly abstract technical details in a extremely straightforward way.

I found the information in this book to be extremely valuable. The focus is generally on higher-level, practical applications of Python, and not on the fundamentals of the language. This is the perfect book for the intermediate programmer who, having gained a firm grasp of the basic constructs of Python, is looking to move beyond obligatory 'Hello World!'-type apps that demonstrate Python's functionality, to create full-fledged Python-driven applications.
