Review: Think PythonUser Review - Jp - Goodreads
Wanted to get across Python pretty quickly, already having experience in C#/VB. Skimmed through this in a half dozen sittings, although it is geared toward beginners it is great for picking up the basic syntax and form of the language. Read full review
