3.0 out of 5 stars Rather frustrating, 12 July 2011
This review is from: Head First Programming: A learner's guide to programming using the Python language (Paperback)
I too am completely new to programming, but even with the help from this book I have to admit that I'm struggling. Yes, I "don't get it", which isn't the book's fault, but I'm finding several aspects of this book very frustrating. I admire their approach and the style in which it's written, but there is not enough on the basic principles of programming, particularly on the way that you need to think about things. While I appreciate that some people find Python intuitive and easy to use, I'm obviously missing that particular neural circuit! For example, the information about indents was about five pages too late, and I agree with a previous reviewer that the pace is too slow in some places and way too fast in others. I'm going to keep trying, but overall I'm finding my programming experience frustrating rather than rewarding.
