Having experience in a few other languages, I decided to buy this book to supplement the documentation on Python.org. It is filled with examples and explanations. I was surprised at how concise the book is. It's nice to pick up a book that assumes you have a general understanding of the language and gets right down to the material. This is an excellent book if you want to have a handy reference.

Dayley offers you a useful Python aid. Deliberately written to be concise, and assuming that the reader already knows some Python. You cannot or should not use this book to learn the language. But once having some acquaintance with Python, the book can help. It's not a dictionary of Python commands. Rather, Dayley thought of likely tasks you'll often need to do. He then supplies explanations and code snippets. The tasks include getting a given file from a tar file, or making a dictionary (hash table), or making a MySQL database. The snippets are typically less than 100 lines, and get the job done.
