Lean Python: Learn Just Enough Python to Build Useful Tools (Paperback)Paul Gerrard (author)
- We can order this
Learn only the essential aspects of Python without cluttering up your mind with features you may never use. This compact book is not a "best way to write code" type of book; rather, the author goes over his most-used functions, which are all you need to know as a beginner and some way beyond.
Lean Python takes 58 Python methods and functions and whittles them down to 15: as author Paul Gerrard says, "I haven't found a need for the rest."

Who This Book Is For

You work in IT and need a programming primer - you might be a tester who needs to have more informed technical discussions with programmers. Working through the examples will help you to appreciate the challenge of good programming.
First-timer - you want a first book on programming that you can assimilate quickly to help you decide whether programming is for you.
