Pros: Good layout, fairly interesting for a technical book.
Cons: Some forced humor.



I will start out by saying that I came into this book as an experience programmer.  As a result, it is hard for me to judge how good a job this book would do at teaching Python to a person not familiar with the basics of programming.<br><br>As an experience programmer, I found myself getting through this book and putting together Python programs very quickly.  At times Hetland attempts to bring out some humor in his writing, and it doesn't always work well for him, but it does help to keep the book from getting monotonous.  Hetland is also a bit arrogant when it comes to the subject of Python vs. other languages, but it doesn't get in the way of the goal of teaching Python's basics.<br><br>Overall, if your looking for a way to get into Python this isn't a bad place to start.<br>
