“The book emphasizes hands-on learning, which makes sense when learning programming. An undergraduate student that has a computer with a Python integrated development environment (IDE) and this book can learn a lot and do some interesting projects. The book is also suitable for high school students interested in programming assignments and projects. A highly readable and compact book, students and beginning programmers will like it.” (Naga Narayanaswamy, Computing Reviews, September, 2015)
“The introduction is well written and enables you to configure the WingIDE within minutes and start using the book. At the end of each chapter, there are programming tasks, most of which are resolved quite well a few pages after. This is a big plus. … if you have passion for easy-to-install scripting languages and you are interested in Python – the book is quite OK for a start!” (Vitosh, Vitosh Academy, vitoshacademy.com, February, 2015)
