"Overall, this book is a great buy. If you are already an avid programmer or intend to become one in the future, you will not be sad having this book about Python on your shelf."
--Brian Radford, SquidPower.com

"I expected this book to give me clear and thorough documentation of Python’s standard library, which is exactly what I got...I would recommend this book to programmers with experience in other languages who want to try python. Those who prefer a hardcopy reference on their desk rather than online resources will love this book."
--Andrew Albert, CSGSA O'Reilly User Group
