5.0 out of 5 stars I am sure it will be a very good book
By H2O on November 27, 2019
Add this book to my small collection of Python books, and I am sure it will be a very good book, because this is not my first book for the same author (Al Sweigart), I have one more else, +the author provides all his books for free reading in the net, +there is an Udemy video course for this book by him.
Hoping good reading, practicing, time with this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good content. Bad manufacture.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 2, 2020
The content is the book is great. I have ordered two books, both of which the glue holding the binding peeled away from the cover within 24 hours.

I'll happily reorder when I am confident the publisher has fixed this problem.
