Editorial Reviews

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)
