Every book comes with an awesome set of online exercises that really cements knowledge learned

I recently purchased "A Smarter Way to Learn Python" and I am just flying through it. I got it a few hours ago and I'm already approaching chapter 20 :)
It's like with each book release the writing gets better, the examples more enjoyable–surprising because his first books are already amazing and well written, the coding exercises really encouraging, fun, and progressive–and with the exercises relating to Mark's newest release, I'm thoroughly enjoying myself to a point where I don't want to stop learning and practicing.
I really wish all books dealing with a learned skill were like this.
Just to sum up my story, around the summer of 2015, I was a total newbie at web development, struggling with HTML...HTML! I didn't know how to conjure up a simple website well at all. Didn't quite know how to properly use CSS either.
But it all started with Mark Myers first book. I am very grateful for his way of teaching that enables one to learn well with great efficiency.
His Python book is just amazing, it keeps true to his "read a little, practice more" type of learning which really gets the information to stay with you.
I already can't wait for his next book, I wonder what it will be :)
