python made simple...but not too simple,
This review is from: Dive Into Python (Paperback)This book is perfectly aimed at people who have some experience of programming. It takes for granted that you are familiar with basic concepts of programming in general and object-oriented programming in particular, and gets on with telling you how Python works.
The structure is very hands-on - showing you how to accomplish particular tasks in a very fast, but clear, way.
What I found was that this book finally persuaded me as to Python's strengths.
On top of that it's very readable, and well supported by useful examples that are readily applicable to real world problems.
