"If you're looking at learning Python then look no further, this book is what you need!"
~ John S (Amazon UK reader)
"Got me up and running with the basic concepts very fast. Would really recommend."
~ Daniel Barry (Amazon UK reader)
"Very nice partner guide to learn Python with.
Meant for beginners, obviously, but tips and tricks for more advanced users.
This book and 2 hours a night helped me get a job with minor programming."
~ joshua wallace (Amazon US reader)
"Excellent book for learning Python. It covers everything you expect from a beginners book (input/output, if and while, error handling, reading external files etc) in a direct and clear way so you don't have to waste time reading stuff you don't need."
~ Katie A. (Amazon US reader)
"I've been frustrated with other Python books that are too detailed and have like 10 chapters on data types before getting into any code. This book was fun to read, clear as day in its explanations, and will give you supreme confidence in writing code."
~ B. Martin (Amazon US reader)
"I would highly recommend to anyone who is a beginner to computer programming. I have read other confusing programming text but this book was well organized and understandable."
~ casandra (Amazon US reader)

If you are a novice to coding and want to start with Python (a great language and gateway to everything in the realm of computers) I'd suggest other publishing.

Lists and Tuples
Child Classes & Objects: The Concept of Inheritance
Built-In Python Functions for Objects.
All of these are written clearly enough. I don't understand what others mean by "not for beginners". The concept of coding is quite complex. Unlike Scratch, we don't get a list of a syntax whose names tell us what they do. Explaining coding easily is a very difficult task. Somebody said that there were better Python coding books out there. There are plenty of people that would say that these "better books" are worse than this book. Don't just read it like a normal book. You will not know how to code because you read this book once. Think about it. If you simply read over a textbook like a novel, you would not have memorized the concepts and diagrams. This book is not built to be read like a novel. Some people say that it was difficult, but I have not seen many problems with this book.
Bad: Kindle for Windows, gets worse with every implimentation. Issues are quite simply bad window sizing logic that forces you to constantly readjust the size of your viewing page and window. Does not auto size to the view screen properly on a tablet when you drag the bar to the top of the screen, with the top control bar the page the close, collapse and full screen icons are off the screeen to the right, even though there is plenty of space for them - just bad coding.. Once you manually adjust the screen size, if you choose to view the notes or table of contents, it then resets the screen width to the overfill the screen again. When you close these side panels, it doesn't restore the application width to what you previously spent a minuit or two setting it to properly fill the screen. And worst of all, it automatically reduces the with of the reading pane by about an inch on each size, so you have to manually increase it to full width again. This would be tolerable if it was only used to read short stories (like comic book length), but is a complete waste of time when one is employing a reference book.
Final Grade: Book- A+++, Kindle - F---------------------... (you get the idea )
I want to write a few programs for personal use, using python, like a database, inventory, home budget, and games. I want to write my own text adventure, like zork. One of the other things I like is, python is a cross platform language. I mean it will run on pc, apple, etc. without having to change any of the code.
If you take your time to read and to enter in python example code, you will be writing code period. Type in the examples so you will understand how it all works. The title of the book says.It all. You read do the examples you to will be ready to program in a sho

I managed to read several pages, which I understood, before my daughter snaffled it. She will return it I’m sure, but she says it’s excellent.
I keep buying things only to have her ‘borrow’ them. I’ll be deducting them from her inheritance soon at this rate.
It is my third Python book. The first was far too comprehensive. The second was probably a superb first year university course book but not suitable for rapid progress. “Python in one day” was “just right”. However, I will be keeping only the other two books for reference. The value of “Python in one day” is that it gets you started quickly.
I see the book as more of a tutorial than a text. This is because the more work you do around the content, the more that you will get from the text. Everything you need for the project is there in the text - including model answers for each task. You will just get so much more if you explore the subject matter using other resources. The text is easy to read and the structure is excellent. I loved working with this book and that is why it has got one of my rare 5 star ratings.
I am an experienced programmer. I came to this book as someone who has struggled with the object orientated side of Python programming. After working my way through the book I now understand the basics of objects in Python and I am ready to go on to learn more. But a knowledge of programming in any language is not needed with this work. I have some minor quibbles with parts but they are bordering on the trivial. Overall this is a very good introduction to programming in general and Python 3 in particular. This book has got what it takes to get pretty much anyone started on programming in Python and, unlike many other, is bang up-to-date as at the time of this review.
