From the Back Cover
Python Scripting for ArcGIS Pro starts with the fundamentals of Python programming, and then dives into how to write useful Python scripts that work with spatial data in ArcGIS Pro. Learn how to execute tools in Python, describe data, and manipulate and create data, as well as a number of more specialized tasks. Create a geoprocessing tool out of your script to automate tasks in ArcGIS Pro, and learn how to share your tools with others.
Some of the key topics you will learn include:
Helpful "points to remember," key terms, and review questions are included at the end of each chapter to reinforce your understanding of Python. Corresponding data and exercises are available online.

Two things that could make this book even more helpful:
1) Exercises at the end of each chapter that walk you through some of this stuff on your own with data provided by the manufacturer's website. I'm surprised that wasn't available here. For coding especially, reading through the text is one thing but actually doing an entire exercise on your own really helps the material stick. Hopefully that is in future editions.
2) The book is mostly in paragraph form and there were a lot of instances when it would have been helpful to have concepts broken down in an outline or list format. That's just a personal preference for learning for me but with so much new material for a newbie, I think that would go a long way here. For example, listing out the methods or functions available for a module. I often had to sift through and reread the chapters and highlight areas that helped me hone in on this stuff. Even an appendix at the end would be helpful. The ArcGIS Pro help documentation online has this but having it available in the book while reading through the concepts would be nice.
