Was a gift so I have no personal experience of it, but the person I gave it to has been happy with it.


Learning Python (Animal Guide)
Learning Python (Animal Guide)
by Mark Lutz
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A massive tome, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fine if you want to learn the whole language, but perhaps not the best if you want to get up to speed quickly on some simple programs - there are aspects of some examples which are not explained, and the index is wrong in many places. Awkward to use as a reference book - OK it's not designed to be one, but if it's the only Python book one has, what else can one do?

I have not used the tick twister yet, but I expect it to be very effective when I eventually use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book, though not expensive, was a huge disappointment. I thought, if anyone can provide new information about Colossus and the rebuild, it would be Mr Sale himself. But the book is almost 100% repetition of information easily obtained on the internet. It contains almost no new information whatsoever either about the Lorenz machine or Colossus. Seriously lacking in detail too. It could have been so much better.
