Very general

I feel most of this book could be found between a few Wikipedia pages. Nothing on the basics of programming, just what programming is as a whole. Could have included things about what loops arrays and logic statements but did not. If I would have known it was this generic I would not have bought the book.

Well informed...

I decided to give this a try because I have programmed before but do not claim to be very good at it. I was expecting this book to walk you step by step on how to make games or something, but it really just walked you through the history and terms of each programming language.

Basic and subjective

Some good information, some was very subjective and misleading. Parts felt like they were being read straight from stack overflow. A little hard to follow as well.

Computer Programming for Beginners

Loved the book! Perfect to listen to while working! Will also get Python book by the same author. Was looking for something very basic and this was perfect! Though I will have to listen to it a couple of times to grasp everything.

For a clear understanding

The book is advanced, I cannot deny that. In spite of this fact, it still fits the beginner's level since it only includes the basic information that you should know when you are starting computer programming. I learned a lot from this book.

Very informative book

Very informative book with easy to follow instructions and logic layout. I used to write code regularly, but have been out of practice for a few years. This book is a great refresher course or beginners guide. If you are interested in programming, give this book a read, as it will get you started off in the right path.

Valuable

It is highly recommended you start from the ground up by using this book. Books on this subject matter normally retail for hundreds of dollars! Why not start off by making a small and affordable investment with your beginner's guide that talks you through Python programming step by step.

I strongly recommend this book!

I strongly recommend this book to those who just want to learn Python. It really doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or an experienced programmer. I especially like the exercises at the end of each chapter. These are great suggestions for practicing what the listener learned in the chapter. I totally recommend this book and I can't wait to buy Learn More Python the Hard Way next.

I learned Python and now I'm learning Java.Not once did I feel frustrated or have to research on the internet myself to figure out what the author was trying to explain. This book is a wonderful resource for the burgeoning programmer.

Such an excellent book!

Programming has become a thorn in me since the time I tried to do it. But when I have read this book, I have gain knowledge of the easy ways of programming. This book has introduced HTML, CSS and Javascript for me to improve and become a great web developer.
