Back to top. After several chapters, you wouldn't still be able to make a simple program if you didn't already know the language.

Paperback Verified Purchase. I know a page book seems almost crazy but, before you start looking elsewhere as I did for something shorter, let me try to explain why this page book may actually end up saving you a lot of time and making you a better Python programmer in the end.
First of all, I've read many of the other well reviewed, up-to-date, Python books yes, all of them were shorter , and being new to Python, I ended up spending most of my time searching online trying to fill in the gaps that the other authors failed to fill in. With this book you don't need to reference anything else because the author does a great job of answering every question.
You can tell he's dedicated his life to teaching Python and knows what problems his readers will run into. While this books is long, it doesn't feel long. It's not just page after page of code samples. Each concept comes with a few code samples and is followed up by very well-written, clear explanations so it's actually a fairly quick read for a page book. Does he repeat himself as other reviewers have noted?
Yes, but it feels like when he does it's purposeful. Even though you often hear that Python is easy to learn, it's an incredibly deep language that requires time and effort.
I believe that by having read this book that I'm starting out far ahead of other new Python programmers, I appreciate the language even more and I'm very comfortable even with Python's advanced topics. The Definitive Python Bible. However, as a retired software engineer I can honestly say that this book is NOT for novices. It's really four books in one. Its a basic-tutorial book, its an "under-the-hood" book, its an Object Oriented Programming Book and an "advanced concepts" book.
All in one. This is primarily due to the fact that many introductory chapters also contain some advanced topics and show the differences between Python 2. I'm a true beginner; seriously. I'm 35 yo English teacher who can easily create a WordPress site, or a Moodle course. Other than that, I know nothing of programming.
But all I know is copy-pasting code from CSS generators. I was terrified to even try. Until I met Python. It was love at first sight the moment I saw its syntax. It was like reading English. I felt like New in the Matrix. Sure there are some programmers who create video tutorials on YouTube but they cover only small parts of Python programming in depth and many of them left me wanting more.
That's until I decided to google 'Best Python books'. Operator Overloading Step 4: Customizing Behavior by Subclassing Step 5: Customizing Constructors, Too Step 6: Using Introspection Tools Step 7 Final: Bound or Unbound Classes Are Objects: Generic Object Factories Multiple Inheritance: Part 1 The super Built-in Function: For Better or Worse?

Adding Methods to Classes Example: Of course, phones are not everyone's idea of coding-friendly tools, but these devices are becoming powerful enough to double as general-purpose computers, especially when paired with keyboards, mice, and styli.
As this note is being written, the outage has lasted for six weeks, but the publisher has 3, new units on the way, and will be printing another 5, almost immediately. This will hopefully suffice while the logistics story is improved over the next few months, but see the Nov note below for more pointers. If you find this book unavailable at Amazon, you may want to try another vendor e.
Although the publisher sometimes falls behind unexpected demand, it is reprinting this book regularly, and shipping delays are not generally very long. At least that's the story for the book's English version; translations tend to be hazier still. Aug Paging Changes in Printing 14 The publisher migrated this edition to a new tools chain for its 14th printing, released in August No material was added or removed in this printing, but formatting differences in the new tools chain impacted this and later printings in two ways: The latter of these has some consequences for errata page reports: Existing reports made from copies printed prior to Aug are relevant to older printings only, because older errata have been fixed in newer printings.
Page numbers are still valid for the older printings, and need no mapping to newer printings. New reports made from copies printed prior to Aug are applicable to both older and newer printings, but page numbers won't be valid for newer printings.
New reports made from copies printed on or after Aug are applicable to both older and newer printings, but page numbers won't be valid for older printings. To address both of the last two points, any new errata reports will include page numbers for both newer and older printings.
On the upside, the impact of this change is expected to be negligible, as most errata have already been caught and fixed at the 3-year point in this edition's history; thanks to all who took time to note the typos. Jun About Future Editions There are currently no plans for a new edition of this book. As of June , the 5th Edition is just 3 years old. It provides in-depth coverage of language and programming fundamentals that span all Python versions—past, present, and future—and remains fully relevant to all Python programmers and applications today.
Moreover, because its content has chronicled two decades of Python's history, this classic text also provides context important for understanding Python's current state.
