this is the best book for learning high level language and many related programming. This book help us to make a programme as some better artificial intelligence with other related programming or creating software.
I read this book cover to cover in sequence. In my opinion, its not really a beginner book to bring you up quickly on python, This book goes over the entire python language set with a microscopic level of view, leading you slowly to an advanced level of understanding on each topic of the language.
If you want to learn python in a week as an experienced programmer, I give this book a lowly 2 stars.
If you want to be a python language geek. I give this book 5 stars because there's much to geek out about in this book. especially in the advanced sections, learning about all the way you probably would never use the language as an ordinary user.
I give this book 3 stars if you read half of it and then toss it out the window, then switch to the second series in book "programming python" and skip around in the book looking for what you need... you might be able to pull off 2 weeks if you do that..
