This review is from: Guide to: Learning Python Decorators (Kindle Edition)
I thought that the book did an excellent job introducing concepts and building on them step by step. I have to admit, my first thought was "Why am I reading that Python has first class functions? Let's see some at signs!" That was stupid of me. As I continued reading I realized Matt was creating a foundation that made decorators a natural progression of the concepts, which impressed me a great deal.
In sum, I think that the book is well arranged: ideas that I didn't realize were prerequisites -- like scope rules and first class functions -- are laid out at the beginning, and then the idea behind decorators is introduced, and finally the sugar syntax. If you want to understand how Python's decorators work, this is a great resource.
