Second, this book is very strange, it is all over the place. First code example is creating web age with Flask. Ok I'm thinking, maybe is not for beginners, lets see what follows. Next was a while loop example. Then several pages later, there is print example. Hello world. What an order! Then you see Dict,sets comprehensions and then at around 1/3 of the book, you start reading a little bit about the Python history, Python1 and so on...
But let's say that something went wrong at putting book together and chapters got mixed up. OK, that's possible. And I'm not going to complain (too much) about this if the material is otherwise good. Well, it is not. That Flask first example is the only code (didn't test it though since I'm avoiding anything 2.7 in order to try to learn newer, modern Python) well that code is the only example where you actually get something partially useful. if you expect any more projects that you can get from this book, forget about it!
I'm looking for books like: Automate The Boring Stuff (btw, free to download from author site, also first few chapters have free Youtube videos - I highly recommend this one to all beginners), I'm looking for books like this, that will teach me some useful projects.
Unfortunately, this book is not useful to beginners at all. It is all over the place, with little useful code. Also, look at other 30 reviews, they are 4 and 5 stars. But read them. Aren't they sound weird? "This book will teach you Python. Python is.... " Prospective readers of Python book already know what Python is or you would not buy Python book. What you want to know is, is BOOK useful, will you teach you something useful, are there good examples and projects in it... NONE of all reviewers with good score mention anything about this. Reviews feels phony and out of place. Someone wrote Python script to auto write reviews on Amazon?
Anyway, I downloaded book for free. (Kindle edition) Because it was free I decided before reading, I will give it at least two stars for being free and I would let you know about this. I mean, you can't complain over something too much if it is free. (although beware of paying for it!) But I just couldn't. It is just not useful at all. It doesn't cover all basic stuff. And show no useful projects. And order is just wrong. And other reviews are not honest!
Get that free book I wrote about earlier, the same author has 3 other free books, watch few youtube videos (start with Sentdex, continue with a little bit higher level: Derek Banas) and you should be past beginner stuff.
> > > a = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] > > > # Using iterators > > > group_adjacent = lambda a, k: zip(*([ iter( a)] * k)) > > > group_adjacent( a, 3) [( 1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6)] > > > group_adjacent( a, 2) The book has a good description of html, though.
For ABSOLUTE beginners I would recommend the following books, and in this order: 1) Baby Python 2) Python in 8 hours 3) Learn Python in One Day.
