Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, 3rd Edition, is one of the most novel programming books I have seen. You learn by creating simple games/programs. The book is presented as a “learn by the seat of your pants” approach that is actually fun, unlike most coding manuals. Typical programming books (yes, even O’Reily), bore me to death after a while. Keep in mind, that is no fault of O’Reily, but of my own short attention span.
I highly suggest you give this Python book a try. As soon as I opened the book, I was very impressed with the presentation. I didn’t feel as if they expected me to know everything, and the objectives were quite well laid out. I felt as if the author understood I wasn’t an expert of have used other coding languages.
From the wording, to the excellent layout, to the actual realistic number of pages, I very much am enjoying this textbook. Trust me, start with this book, before you graduate to the 1500 (yes you read that right) page O’Reily book. The book was just updated Enjoy!
