Very poorly formatted in Kindle for the Cloud. I probably won't risk another kindle download.
A more apt title would be: "The Fairly Decent, Certainly Not Awful Beginner's Guide".
This book skimmed over topics far too quickly in many cases. It frequently mentioned things in passing without telling you anything about how to use them. For example, it recommended using docstrings with functions as good programming practice, but didn't adequately explain what they are and completely omitted any mention of how to use them. Bit of a mixed message there!
Similarly, it made passing mention of triple quotes without further explanation. What are triple quotes, and why would I want to use them? I had to look online to find out.
It also suffered from numerous errors, such as indentation errors (which are a big deal in a language like Python).
Do yourself a favor, find a different book or a free online tutorial.
