Title is misleading.

Although this is a well read and produced audiobook, it has a misleading title.
I purchased this book because I am a beginner that wants to learn Python. What better book to start with than "Learn Python: The Ultimate Guide to Learning one of the Most Useful Programming Languages"....right?
Wrong...this book does not teach Python. Rather, it is about how to chose a programming language to learn, and some compare and contrast of each.
While listening to the book, I kept thinking that eventually it will start to teach some Python, but it never did.
So, if you are interested in learning Python, do not buy this book. If you want to learn a little about program language history and philosophy, buy the book.
I hope this review helps someone not make the same mistake I did and buy this book thinking they will learn Python.

worked for me!

This book is uses clear and very easy to understand language. It made "sense" to me, and I am not a programmer; but now can hope to be one (as a hobby, anyway). I would recommend this book to people looking to learn about coding that have little or no prior knowledge or experience.

basically nothing to do with Python.

this book teaches nothing about Python. waste of money. just talks about various languages and styles while saying "Python is cool" a lot. I expected to actually learn something about Python from a book titled "guide to learning Python".

Great grab!!!

This is an excellent book for learning Python. All of the examples are explained clearly, and are really to easy to understand. Well my understanding of the fundamentals in C, and other higher programming languages has been reinforced, as they share similar coding techniques. If you have some basic programming knowledge, or are just a beginner, you can learn Python easily with this book. Great read!

I purchased this book as an introduction to Python

I purchased this book as an introduction to Python, though I have some programming background. I really enjoyed the tone of this book, and the fact that it chunks up the lessons into short, manageable parts that all work together. Everything is really simplified in this book, with great examples and it made me feel like a non computer savvy person like me could attempt to do some work in python.

Very well written.

Anyway, all the problems I had with Python previously were addressed and I was able to find my problems with the help of this book. This semester I'm taking an into to programming class with a Python section that we just started. This book has helped me immensely. I was given access to this to write an unbiased review, but I would pay for it, that is the highest praise I can give.

Awesome!


This is an awesome book on Python.It gives me a lots of information as well as easy directions. Python is a great way to learn programming. Python is not that simple but with a visual learning experience than someone can learn fast.
Python is a high level language that is easy to understand because of the way it is organized.
I really recommend this book if someone is wanting to learn how to program in python.

Beginner friendly intro to Python

This is a great place to start when first beginning to learn Python. It provides the basic concepts that you would need to get started. The explanations are short and basic. It doesn't go into great detail so you're not getting too much information when you're just starting out. It offers just enough information to get an idea of what the basic concepts are and for you to decide if you would like to continue with Python and advance your skill. The exercises, quizzes and graphics are great tools though out the book that helps the reader to grasp the concept in a very beginner friendly way. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review of the product.

A good start ...

Very good book written by a real teacher whose not-so-subtle motto is "...do what I say; don't do anything else; it's GOOD for you; do it."
And his choice of exercises and examples ARE all good for you.
If you don't like a somewhat irascible tone from time to time or if you already know too much to learn anything new, then don't buy this book.
On the other hand, if you want to learn Python, or learn MORE about Python, and don't mind being told what to do in order to achieve your goal, you can;t do any better than buying this book.
Highly recommended.
