You can become a skilled Python programmer in less than one week. 

The Python programming language has long been seen as one of the best ones to use. It has a big library to use, is easy to read, and has all the great features that you are going to need when first learning how to work with coding. It is all there ready for you to use, and you just need to take the first steps! 

This guidebook is going to help you to take these first steps by showing you exactly how to get started with the Python programming language. Whether you have worked in coding before or you are just looking to get started, this guidebook has all the topics and steps that you need to get your first code written in no time. Inside this guidebook you will learn: 

  • Why should I learn about Python? 
  • The basic parts of the Python code 
  • Working with classes and objects 
  • Working on inheritances 
  • Exception handling 
  • Working with decision control structures 
  • The importance of loops 
  • What file input and output means in this language 
  • The different operators available to make the code stronger 
  • Some practice writing out codes to make fun games all on your own inside Python. 

Working on the Python language can be a rewarding experience. There is a lot of power that can be behind these programs but it is simple enough for even a beginner to be able to use all on their own. When you are ready to get started on working with Python and some of your own codes, make sure to check out this guidebook and see just how great it can be to do all of this with Python!

Good beginners guide

Which character – as performed by Christopher Born – was your favourite?

This is an eye-opener book narration which was nicely done. I like the narration style, just simple and pronounced well

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The different operators available to make the code stronger. Some practice writing out codes to make fun games all on your own inside Python.

Any additional comments?

This is a good book just to get started in python. it gives good idea. Lacks details in the area of functions. Hopefully in next revisions they will improve the content. I have previously been studying Linux and was advised that Python would be the next step to improve my programming skills. I found this book to be a helpful and valuable guide to use while learning the basics.

Helpful and valuable guide

Any additional comments?

I have to do python programming as part of my computing class, however I have always struggled with it and found myself falling behind others. When I got this book I didn't expect it to help me as much as it did. Everything is written in a easy to follow manner and I can already see an improvement in my programming. I feel really excited about how much progress I'm making and I completely recommend this to anybody who wants to learn python in a simple way.

Pretty good book!

Great resource. This book works through the subject so methodically that I was coding within days of starting. With an awesome information and this book, I've automated a lot of tasks I perform day to day. The book is formed in straightforward dialect with the goal that the reader can without much of a stretch comprehend it. The tips and traps are exceptionally profitable to be a decent software engineer. Much obliged to you to the author for giving this supportive guide.

Excellent reference!

This is the first book that I use to learn about python. It offers wonderful, detailed description of the Python language. It is easy to read and gives good, usable explanations of almost every aspect of the language. After reading it, I understand the core of python. I recommend it to all of you who want to learn python for the first time.

The tittle is true!

Python programming in one week! is it truly possible? I never thought so but i took the challenge and purchase this book read this book 2 times already now i am concentrating all the steps one by one and i am improving thanks to the author for providing so much detailed information, if i want to find all these quality information it would take a month or so find and another one to organized them, but the tips that make my job easy would be impossible for a newbie like me to find.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in python.

Worth recommending

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Excellent book! I have many programming books and many specific to Python. This is my favorite of the Python books because it is the easiest to read. The writing style is more relaxed, the print is not too small, and good use of "boxing" and highlighting draws your attention to where it should be. Surely i'll recommend this book

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Another plus, a big one in my opinion, is example code. Where applicable, the author marks code locations with circled numbers. In the explanatory text, these circled numbers take you right to the part of the code that is being discussed.

Any additional comments?

In many books, there is no such marking system and you have to just look at the code and figure out what lines or parts they are referring to. It is as effective as, and less sloppy than, if arrows were to be drawn from explanation to code.

Really worth recommending!

Python Programming in Less Than One Week

I was looking for something to start me off on the road to programming (it was a hobby some centuries ago using BASIC !!!). Having found that most of the terminology is exactly the same centuries later, I am quite pleased and very pleased with the lay out of the book. Thank you very much for an extremely good read. If you want to start with python go no further this book is what you need. It's helpful for beginners

Good book very easy to follow

Bought as a starter guide for a class i am running for beginners, very easy to follow but obviously you will quickly skill yourself out of the book. However with that said for a complete beginner this book is well written and very easy to follow. GOOD for people learning programming.

Great material.

The best beginner's book on Python I've researched. Simple format, drills and exercises and doing as well as preparing the environment around programming covered, essentially for beginners. Make sure you intend to use Python 2 before purchase good if you intend to use Python 2. Interesting and effective approach.

Helpful for programming on python

This is such an instructive manual! This book will help you to learn Python Programming inside couple of days! This book contains significant cases, and a well ordered guide on the basics of Python programming from establishment to the more mind boggling ideas of classes and protest arranged programming. This is truly a flawless review instructional exercise to enable self-learners to comprehend the capacities of Python and enable them to make straightforward and useful projects all alone. Would prescribe this book!

Python Programming in Less Than One Week

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Clear, good pacing, did a nice job.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

No

Do you have any additional comments?

Another book by R. M. Lewis that is a true wonder: What people might not know is that all his books follow the same strategy and examples/ exercises in parallel, in that way you can read them all at the same time and that way in a comparative way figure out how programming languages work in a different way.

Exceptional guide to use....

Great to have.........This book is a very informative and essential. This is the best and comprehensive guide . Easy to use and learn sample have really clearly understood. This book has a very good guideline for anyone who wants to learn python language.This book was a great resource for homework assignments and projects. Instructions and code were very clear and concise, and I enjoyed making my own way through the book, playing with Python outside of class time. It is not really a book for someone who is an intermediate programmer or better, but for a real beginner.I highly recommend it........

More like learn Python fast and easy.

What does Christopher Born bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The presentation of the book is so simple so anyone can easily understand it.

Any additional comments?

Experienced coders will pick-up Python syntax during the review of familiar basics. I enjoyed the book and learned a lot from the experience. Had a little trouble with the Kindle version not being able to listen the example code text. Easily fixed with an email to the publisher who promptly supplied a corrected version at no cost. As an experienced programmer I highly recommend this book for learning Python. It's made learning Python fun. Also, it's refreshingly free of errors; the code examples work.

Any additional comments?

I am a beginner trying to learn Python programming. I found this book to be very helpful. It is well organized, clearly explains Python basic features, and demonstrates some basic programming concepts in a way that is neither too basic nor too advanced. I recommend it.

A great book! The projects are fun and rewarding. The only catch is that it might be tricky to install the necessary components required by the projects, such as python Once you have that part figured out, you are on your way for fun!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Great resource. This book works through the subject so methodically that I was coding within days of starting. With an awesome information and this book, I've automated a lot of tasks I perform day to day. It won't make you a programmer able to work for a dev shop, but it will empower you to do more than just rely on existing tools and products.
