4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 28 May 2014
This review is from: Learn Python the Hard Way: A Very Simple Introduction to the Terrifyingly Beautiful World of Computers and Code (Zed Shaw's Hard Way Series) (Kindle Edition)
This book is really good and worth getting. The chapters are well paced where you can do one a day ( or rather my 11 year old son did). About half way through he suddenly he throws open ended projects and says to take a week doing it. This almost put the brakes on his progress and he would have completely stopped had I not been mentoring him. What I am trying to say is that some of the later projects could be more defined so that the target audience knows when they are finished or how much they have to do.

I would also say that some of the lists he says to memorise by rote are better off being understood. Eg. bolean expressions: ( true and true = true, true and false = false....)

There is method to his teaching madness in most places (such as asking you to build a program and then explains what it does afterwards)
