From the reviews:
"It is aimed at college freshmen and teaches fundamental concepts and abstract notions, starting with the basics. ... the exercises are the book's most attractive feature. There are sample programs, and the exercises ask readers to figure out the expected outputs. These are great, and could even serve as excellent job interview questions! Overall, the book serves its purpose, and its intended audience, well." (Naga Narayanaswamy, Computing Reviews, September, 2013)"UEcoluk and Kalkan (both, Middle East Technical Univ., Turkey) offer a self-contained, concise introduction to computer science and Python programming. The intended audience is college freshmen taking their first computer science course. ... It covers basic programming in Python along with programming paradigms, data structures, and even computational complexity ... . Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates." (S. L. Tanimoto, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), July, 2013)
