This review is from: Think Python (Paperback)
I was looking for an introduction to Python and had considered something with more details of the language structure. I'm a few chapters into this, and it's emphasis is on developing wider programming skills, principles of programming in general, and problem-solving. The exercises are superb for forcing the novice like me to come up with creative solutions. The web support is also excellent. I can see already how the skills learnt will be relevant for programming in other languages. This is exactly what I was looking for, so I'm very pleased. I can see how someone who wants an encyclopaedic guide to Python might be disappointed. But Mr Downey is clearly a skilled educator and deserves great credit as an author.
