Python Annotated Archives

0072121041, McGraw-Hill, September 1999

Core Python Programming

0130260363, Prentice Hall PTR, 816 pages (January 2001)

From an anonymous reviewer: "Very well written. It is the clearest, friendliest book I have come across yet for explaining Python, and putting it in a wider context. It does not presume a large amount of other experience. It may be too slow for more advanced people, but it does go into some important Python topics carefully and in depth. Unlike too many beginner books, it never condescends or tortures the reader with childish hide-and-seek prose games. Not too many in-depth real-world examples in the book (hopefully he will do a followup volume), it sticks to gaining a solid grasp of Python syntax and structure."

Covers up to Python 2.0. CD-ROM for Unix, Win32, and MacOS.
