Praise

“Python is a programming language, but it is also fun to play with. This book recognizes that.”
—Geek Tech Stuff

“Rather than being an introductory text, Vaughan’s book pushes you in interesting directions for solving a diverse set of problems. Most of these “impractical” projects, while themselves being not so useless after all, will have parallels to real life projects.”
—Greg Laden, Greg Laden’s Blog

“A must have second book for every developer that ever wants to learn Python as a language.”
—Ian Mizer, Atlanta Python Programmers Group
