Knowledge that sticks

Keith Dvorjak has managed to craft a careful, measured approach to learning Python from scratch. You might get more out of a bigger, meatier book, but this one contains the essentials to understanding the language and learning the syntax. Self-starting motivation is needed here -- there are no large scale coding challenges to test an accumulation of concepts, only small scale exercises to hold the user's hand while learning individual concepts. Great effort from the author though.

Manageable chunks of learning for a great approach

This book is careful not to go over your head by going too fast, or by throwing a lot of complicated issues at you at once. This is a solid appraoch to learning the fundamentals of Python programming to get you up and running in a relatively short amount of time. A+ delivery.

Progress on a reasonable scale

You won't be an expert code wizard after finishing this book, but you will be able to get started writing some programs in Python. Experience is the best teacher, but this book will give you a solid foundation to get started on your own.

Highly recommended for new students

This book is excellent. The material is understandable and easy to implement. The narrator reading the code is strange at first, but I got used to it quickly. This book provides a good foundation for Python essentials.

Easy to follow organization

The concepts in this book are laid out in a beginner friendly format. The chapters build upon one another step by step, so that you're still using techinques you learned in earlier chapters later. It helps to reinforce the stuff you've already learned, and gives you a base for the newer stuff. Really good work from the author.

Good tutorial for beginners

I like the way this book is organized. It's an easy thing to sit down for a few minutes at a time and complete a lesson, then do a little bit of practice.
