This book should be avoided by everyone. Beginning programmers will be totally confused. Beginning python programmers will be mislead and waste a lot of time. Persons coming to python with a solid background will also find themselves wasting time, but it will be venting their frustration at the author's breezy errors and the fact that they have given him money for this work.
Also the entire concept of editorial review seems to have been dismissed by this publisher.
I cannot stress enough how bad this book is. I recommend going with "Learning Python" for an introduction, or "Programming Python" by Mark Lutz if you want to really get into the meat of things.
This book is unacceptable at every level.
If your looking for the definitive Python reference that you can carry with you and look up the more esoteric methods or rules. Then this is DEFINITELY NOT the book for you! You need to go get Python Essential Reference. I have 5 python books right now. Of the 5 I'm thinking of getting another copy to carry with me, and leave this one at work. All the rest we're helpful in getting me started, but don't get the same use day to day.
I found the type just the right size. Overall a comfortable read. It sold me on Python.
