This is a perfect book for everyone!

I gave this book a shot. I must say that this is a great book that gives solid foundations on Python. At first, it teaches you the basics but also covers some useful details of the language. There are a lot of different things that you are going to be able to do when you decide to work with the python coding language. And this book is a great guide for beginners.

No idea what I was doing, until now!

I'm so glad I was able to find this book in audio format! I don't have much time for paperback books, so this really allowed me to succeed in coding! Thanks for this, I recommend it highly!

Very imformative and easy to follow

I have been trying to learn Python for a long time since I use it occasionally for work. I found this audio book to be very informative. It discusses the steps and highlights the appropriate syntax. It also shows you some best practices to make sure you avoid making syntax errors.

Easy to master


I thoroughly enjoyed this book because I am wanting to learn to do computer programming. Don’t let the shows fool you, its not that easy, but with this book, it lifted a weight I didn’t know I had been feeling. This shows even the beginners how to start.

A new way to think about coding

This is something totally different from anything I have ever tried! I’ve been wanting to get into coding, and I thought it would be interesting to try the audio version of this book since I’m getting better at JavaScript and want to see what other languages are like.

This explains everything in-depth. If this is your first introduction to coding, you might struggle with it, because a lot of coding depends upon visual scanning of your code to ensure that everything is lined up and closed up.

However, if you are visually impaired, this is your place to start!! This audiobook functions as a way of listening to a detailed explanation of how to start coding in Python. It’s better than using a screen-reader, since a lot of coding sites use images to show lines of code. I’m a really visual person, but this is great for people who can remember everything they hear.
