Python For Dummies
by David Goodger
September 20, 2006
The latest book to be published in the "For Dummies" series covers Python. I'm proud to have played a small part in its production.


On Monday I received my copy of Python For Dummies by Stef & Aahz Maruch. Aahz had asked me to be the technical editor for the book and I was happy to do it, and the book being written so well it was truly a pleasure. As with other books in the "For Dummies" series, this book doesn't treat its readers like dummies but covers the material in an accessible and light-hearted way, geared toward the beginner.

I hope this book exposes many new programmers to the delights of Python, a programming language that's fun to use.

Python For Dummies is available from your local bookseller or online in Canada, in the US, and elsewhere I'm sure.
