    Excellent

    This book does an excellent job of exposing the reader to Python 3. Mark Summerfield shows how to make testing easy with doctest. He also offers suggestions on how to write more maintainable code.

    As stated before, the margins feature cross-references. This is excellent if you want to use the book as a reference, it will point you to pages relevant to the current topic! The book has everything, from binary access files to regex to GUI programming.

    Summerfield does just the right amount of explaining topics for new programmers, and jumps into code discussion and exercises for experienced programmers. He also doesn't clutter the pages with repetitive code, so you are able to follow the topics easily. I definitely recommend this book for anyone moving from Python 2.5+ to Python 3, or anyone who is new to the language.

    great python 3 book

    like most programming books this one covers the language

    what makes this book stand out are the following
    discusses the importance of conventions and idioms
    wants you to write good code, not just code that works
    uses the left margin well for cross references to relevant material
    uses the right margin to note subtle traps in the code
    put try loops in the code from the beginning
    it's ok for documentation to be longer than the code

    so after several decades of trying to be a professional coder
    whats not to like
