‘Terrific’

“With a patient and experienced pedagogical style, and a combination of thorough language instruction and plenty of illustrative sample code, Python Crash Course is a terrific way to begin learning computer programming in general and the Python language in particular.”

—Michael J. Ross, web developer and former Slashdot contributor

‘Well Thought Out’

“All of these projects are well thought out and presented in such a way that learning the subject matter and implementing it is much more an enjoyable pastime rather than an onerous task that must be completed. Eric took the time to deal with some rather complex projects and lay them out in a consistent, logical and pleasant manner that draws the reader into the subject willingly.”

—Full Circle Magazine

‘Teaches Clean Programming’

“While Python Crash Course uses Python to teach you to code, it also teaches clean programming skills that apply to most other languages.”

—Great Lakes Geek
