As with any book on language syntax, there is errata in this one. Unlike other people who complain about errata in text books like this one, I don't. Debugging is part of code-writing. It's hard for new people today, just as it was hard on new people when I first start writing code almost 30 years ago. It is monumentally frustrating if you're new, but it's the price you must pay if you want to learn this skill.
Don't be discouraged with the book's errata, or your own mistakes. Part of your learning curve is understanding what the interpreters error messages mean when you execute your scripts.
The author walks you through installation (for Windows, Mac, and Linux), modifying your path variable (don't worry if you don't know what that is), and executing simple scripts.
If you're completely new to coding, or have lots of experience, this is a great intro to the basics of Python.
One call-out for the Kindle Version, you can't copy-and-paste text from the Cloud Reader so all examples will have to be retyped manually. None of the examples are complicated enough that this is a real problem, but it's something I hadn't considered when I bought it.
Like I said above, this information is free elsewhere, but the even tone and concise explanations were well worth the small amount I paid.
This is just what I needed to ease myself back into OO programming. I look forward to continuing to master the concepts laid out here, then to moving on to the next level. Good introductory book.
