Python is blessed with more good books than some languages, but there are still holes. One big one is for a book that takes somebody who knows coding and can get python to work but hasn't taken the leap to thinking pythonically. On one side of this gap are wonderful books such as O'Reilly's "Introducing Python", and the terrific books on the other side range from Luciano Ramalho's "Fluent Python" to Brett Slatkin's handy "Effective Python" or the career-starter books that clog the python book chain (happily) such as the Greenfields' "Two Scoops of Django" , Miller and Guido's "Introduction to Machine Learning with Python", or Percival's "Test Driven Development with Django and Python".
If you want to go from being able to write runnable python scripts to the beginning levels of being able to follow pycon tutorials, this is the book for you. Ramalho's "Fluent Python" is the best python book written overall, but you have to know what's in this book to read that one. This is best book for that job.
All of my learning has been self taught, just solving for the problem at hand. While I am only 100 pages in, this book has revealed a lot of the 'why' and 'how' underneath the code I have been using this whole time.
I imagine it would be a boring read for a MS in compsci, for me it has been eye opening, and has helped me write better code.
Highly recommended for hobby/mid-level/self-taught pythonistas like myself.
I just wish there were a section on regular expressions. Otherwise, it's a fine intro to the language.
If I could register a complaint about this book is that it wasn't available when I was first learning Python back in 2005!
The biggest problem with the book is at my age the print is so small I just can't read it, which renders the book almost useless to me as a reference.
