    The Best Python Reference

    Straight to the point, no B.S. Python Desktop reference.

    The One Book You Need

    I have programmed in Python for over 6 years and I still consult this book. The best book on Python bar none. It is worth the price just for the section on multiprocessing.

    Recommended for the Advanced Python Programmer

    I bought this book after listening to a talk by Beazley on Python's Global Interpreter Lock. I was impressed with the clarity of his presentation and decided to buy the book. The book covers a broad range of topics and is useful as a reference. The writing is generally very good. I give it 4 stars only because of two minor complaints. (1) The formatting of the programs is not as pretty as it can be, and sometimes incorrect (Python programs depend on indentation, so dear publisher: please be careful with typesetting code). (2) I wish some of the advanced topics could be covered in more detail, e.g., method resolution order, properties, etc. (material in Chapter 7). Also, topics like multiprocessing deserve more in-depth treatment than is given in the book. For a book like this, more basic stuff can be omitted to make room for the advanced material. Also, the book has almost no diagrams, which would be tremendously helpful in explaining how things are implemented and how accordingly to write efficient code.
