5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CONCISE introduction to programming with Python 3, 2 Aug 2012
This review is from: A Concise Introduction to Programming in Python (Chapman & Hall/CRC Textbooks in Computing) (Paperback)
A concise introduction to programming with Python is exactly that: Concise - and well written!

M.J.Johnson sticks to an incremental introduction to Programming that has a narrow focus and gives clear assignments after each chapter. These assignments reinforce the learning of what was explained in the chapter, and only require the knowledge which was developed by the reader up to that point.

It is a very well structured text-book for self-studying or for an undergraduate program. The book stands on its own and no further material is needed.

In comparison to other books:
- It has no old stories which are peripheral and only of nostalgic interest.
- It wants the reader to try the examples in the book (which are well written).
- It forces the reader to think in problems & solutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best book to learn Python with, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Concise Introduction to Programming in Python (Chapman & Hall/CRC Textbooks in Computing) (Paperback)
This is one of the best books about a programming language I've read, full stop.
I'm tempted to compare it to the classic C book by Kernighan & Ritchie.
Concise and clear, to the point, excellent and interesting exercises for all levels, no fluff, the fastest way to get a working knowledge of Python.
Other authors, take note!
