It's an amazing book, well written, so well written that ANYONE even someone in grade school will understand it. In less than a few weeks you will be writing apps, building website, alien adventure games, charts, etc. Do yourself a favor and go with that book!
Book has an issue with code text becoming too small or faint (on print version), sometimes making it difficult to read. I got the kindle version. If your screen resolution is high, body text will be a good size but the code text will be tiny. You can adjust zoom or downsize monitor resolution. Print version, can't fix the faint code text, but you can download the whole code files from URL provided by the author (front first pages). More importantly, you can view the code online on a screen as you type them to your Python terminal. Hope that helps.

It is not suitable for beginners regardless what other reviewers claim. The writer is obviously a data-scientist as you can tell over and over agin in his text.
The language used is complicated and it WILL leave anyone without prior programming knowledge behind within 2 chapters.
That said, if you have experience with writing software the technical aspects of Python are covered thoroughly.
Be warned, beginners can get better products on Python coding for less money here on Amazon.
I've been programming for more than 10 years but totally new to Python and found for me the book was paced well and structured well and covered a good breadth of the topic.
I also enjoyed the enthusiasm with which the subject matter was presented and occasional dashes of humour to keep things from getting too dry.
