This is a wonderfully written book. Having programed for several decades, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed a introductory programing book. This book blends in concepts of how to solve problems while introducing python. The progression of python was done excellently with non-trivial insightful examples.
I only gripe I have about my current copy of the book is that there were several pages missing! The 4 star is for these missing pages. Otherwise, this product deserves a 5 star for what it accomplishes.
The temporary fix:
As others have noted, this book is available online and I was able to read the missing pages there!
Some exercises are mind-bugging and challenging.
I am still working on some of them by myself. I felt a plateau in some problems.
Definitely worthwhile to invest your time and effort !!!
