Product description

Review

Python Crash Course selected as one of the best books for learning Python by Real Python

Python Crash Course was selected as one of the best books for learning Python by Real Python
"It has been interesting to see, over the last few years, No Starch Press, which produces this book, growing and producing future classics that should be alongside the more traditional O'Reilly Press programming books. Python Crash Course is one of those books."
--Greg Laden, ScienceBlogs

"All of these projects are well thought out and presented in such a way that learning the subject matter and implementing it is much more an enjoyable pastime rather than an onerous task that must be completed. Eric took the time to deal with some rather complex projects and lay them out in a consistent, logical and pleasant manner that draws the reader into the subject willingly, which unfortunately, many authors fail to do."
--Full Circle Magazine

"The book is well presented with good explanations of the code snippets. It works with you, one small step at a time, building more complex code, explaining what's going on all the way."
--FlickThrough Reviews

"Learning Python with Python Crash Course was an extremely positive experience! A great choice if you're new to Python."
--Mikke Goes Coding

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read
Reviewed in the United States on 16 August 2019
Just finished the book and followed the code all way, even did some of the "Try this yourself" exercises. Very well organized. 6 stars on that. Code in the book was accurate and worked as expected. I didn't just try the code from the resource web site. I actually typed in every line from the book and made it all the way to deployment. (Quite an accomplishment, I say. :-)).

Only one gripe - see pictures attached. After 3 weeks of ownership, the book lost its clothing. :-(

I wonder if Mr Matthes will send me an autographed copy to replace my sad, broken, copy? :-)
