5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Beginner's Book, October 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I just received this book last week, and I am having so much fun with it...So much fun, that this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review for a book purchased from Amazon.

I am 59 years old, with no programming experience, and I am the furthest thing from being a computer geek that you could imagine. I have always wanted to learn a little about programming. I have leafed through some other books, but they all seemed either very intimidating or very dry/boring, or both. This book is just perfect to get someone like me started. What a fun way to learn...whether you are a kid or a big kid-at-heart.

The extras and helpful tools on the author's website are a great bonus.

I find that having the book in hand to make notes in, makes for a better learning experience. But if you are only going to download the free version, then please consider making a donation on the author's website...I think the author really deserves it.
