From the Author

Who This Book Is For

This book was written for practicing Python programmers who want to become proficient in Python 3. If you know Python 2 but are willing to migrate to Python 3.4 or later, you should be fine. [...]

If you are not sure whether you know enough Python to follow along, review the topics of the official Python Tutorial. Topics covered in the tutorial will not be explained here, except for some features that are new in Python 3.

Who This Book Is Not For

If you are just learning Python, this book is going to be hard to follow. Not only that, if you read it too early in your Python journey, it may give you the impression that every Python script should leverage special methods and metaprogramming tricks. Premature abstraction is as bad as premature optimization.

(extracted from the Preface, page xvi, emphasis added)

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the Kindle book
By Shimin Guo on March 17, 2019
The book is great, but the app forever stuck at page 54, and wouldn't re-sync when I tried to work around it by turning the page on web Kindle. Waste of money.
