Good Beginner's Book March 13, 2011
I rented this textbook because I wanted to learn more deeply a programming language and a programmer friend of mine recommended Python as a good "first language" I think this was a wonderful textbook. I already had a bit of python programming in my head, but when I read this book, it was if I didn't know any of that because the author informs you so well. Summary, buy it to learn the easy way.
