If you want to learn by example this book is not for you.
This book is 1600 pages of one line examples.
There are no example programs to follow that will help you learn.
By the time you get to page 230 (if you can stick with it) you have forgotten a lot of what you have read previously; it’s so boring.
The author claims the book is a tutorial and not a reference.
I disagree; it is more a reference and I would give it 5 stars if the book was promoted as such.

This is a very detailed book on Python, that teaches well and serves as an excellent reference. However, I wouldn't recommend it if you have no programming experience. There are some easier books to get started and this book serves better as an intermediate level text in my experience. Try Python Programming for Absolute Beginners and then polish your skills with this book.

Hopeless on kindle. Can't skip by chapter, index stretches over many pages etc. Attempting to "return" this copy.

Nothing wrong with the book at all. It's an established "go to" book.

Could do with a good edit to cut out repetition. The book rather grinds through the subject.
However, it does what it sets out to do as long as you don't mind going slowly - among the words there are many nuggets.
