Do you want to take your Python to the next level? Python is easy to learn. You can learn the basics in a day and be productive with it, but there are more-advanced constructs that you will eventually run across if you spend enough time with it. Don't be confused by these constructs; learn them, embrace them, and improve your code and the code of others.

This audiobook combines three popular guides into one. You will hear:

  • Guide to: Functional Python & Comprehension Constructs
  • Guide to: Learning Iteration & Generators in Python
  • Guide to: Learning Python Decorators

Write Python code like the masters. These constructs, while not necessary per se, allow you to be more succinct, to reuse code, and to think about code in a different way. You will learn:

  • How the constructs work
  • When to use them
  • Real-life examples from the standard library
  • Functional programming
  • List comprehensions
  • Generator expressions
  • Set & dict comprehensions
  • Iteration
  • Generators
  • Closures
  • Decorators

I have taught material similar to these constructs at conferences such as PyCon, OSCON, and Strata. This audiobook is based on my experience teaching and using Python for many years. I hope you learn something over the course of your listening. Maybe it will help you with your next task, code review, or job interview.

Could have been much better

The narrator simply reads code examples nearly verbatim, which is very difficult to follow. I think audio format would work if code examples were described in terms of general flow and intent, as in a normal conversation. Otherwise it's not a good fit for audio.

overall the contents are informational but code snippets are very hard to follow by just listening to the narrator reading the code. Audible should consider displaying the code snippets on the screen when its being narrated for better understanding and usefulness.
