    excellent book

    Excellent! The book is definitively for beginners who have no idea or know nothing about Python before. The author mixes basic concepts, without going deeply enough in some subjects. In addition, author provides teaching materials online. You can design your own learning path while having fun to navigate through the online course

    its worthy

    It was a good light weight introduction to Python. I would expect a lot more detail and substance if this had been purchased; but for free, it was s very worthwhile

    wonderful book

    It's a great work for people getting their feet wet in Python-it explains concepts well and provides examples (in code); I was stuck on functions for instance, and the book certainly clarified the same. Overall, it's a good starter book for people starting Python

    good book

    Good overall book. Might be best to at least have some coding experience however. It eases in to coding well, but forgets to mention some best practices for all code (not just python) also doesn't give a lot of help in tweakin/refining code to run faster (bit this may not be an intro type so no starts deducted

    useful book

    Python, being a programming language with a more or less general purpose is taught briefly yet in a very organized manner. I can now begin to understand how this can be useful for scientific applications. It has most of what any Python beginner would need, particularly the codes. I would have wanted to see more visual samples of the working program but this serves as a good starting point for now.

    Great Book

    I was looking for a casual introduction to Python, and found it in this book. Basic instructions about functions and syntax, explained in a concise fashion. I didn't expect the code to be spelled out, but I followed along easily by typing it out at my desktop. Great listen!

    Worth....

    Well, according to this book Python language is a versatile and easy to learn. These are good points, especially if you are not very experienced in code writing, just like me. Indeed, that chapter about Python fundamentals is pretty simple for understanding. I also appreciate the fact that mastering this particular language doesn't need too many resources.
