5.0 out of 5 stars Newbie programmer, May 20, 2010
This review is from: Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I picked up a copy of this book and was in all honesty blown away by how easy the concepts of python are introduced to the reader in a clear and concise manner. The fact that you are also making small little games with your programs throughout this book helps with motivation as tasks get harder and harder - it keeps it all fun while learning. I was not completely new to the programming lingo and have covered some of the basics through a java course a few years back, never the less this book is a great resource to brush up on the skills.

I actually ran into some trouble here and there as the first online edition I read wasn't completely up to date with some changes in Python - I e-mailed the author and got great personal help to advance further - that was of course much appreciated as well.

All over I am very satisfied and would gladly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning Python at a light and entertaining pace.
