”I love love love the book. It’s like having a seasoned tutor explaining, well, tricks! I’m learning Python on the job and I’m coming from powershell, which I learned on the job—so lots of new, great stuff. Whenever I get stuck in Python (usually with flask blueprints or I feel like my code could be more Pythonic) I post questions in our internal Python chat room. I’m often amazed at some of the answers coworkers give me. Dict comprehensions, lambdas, and generators often pepper their feedback. I am always impressed and yet flabbergasted at how powerful Python is when you know these tricks and can implement them correctly. Your book was exactly what I wanted to help get me from a bewildered powershell scripter to someone who knows how and when to use these Pythonic ‘tricks’ everyone has been talking about. As someone who doesn’t have my degree in CS it’s nice to have the text to explain things that others might have learned when they were classically educated. I am really enjoying the book and am subscribed to the emails as well, which is how I found out about the book.”

”I first heard about your book from a co-worker who wanted to trick me with your example of how dictionaries are built. I was almost 100% sure about the reason why the end product was a much smaller/simpler dictionary but I must confess that I did not expect the outcome 🙂 He showed me the book via video conferencing and I sort of skimmed through it as he flipped the pages for me, and I was immediately curious to read more. That same afternoon I purchased my own copy and proceeded to read your explanation for the way dictionaries are created in Python and later that day, as I met a different co-worker for coffee, I used the same trick on him 🙂 He then sprung a different question on the same principle, and because of the way you explained things in your book, I was able tonot* guess the result but correctly answer what the outcome would be. That means that you did a great job at explaining things :)* I am not new in Python and some of the concepts in some of the chapters are not new to me, but I must say that I do get something out of every chapter so far, so kudos for writing a very nice book and for doing a fantastic job at explaining concepts behind the tricks! I’m very much looking forward to the updates and I will certainly let my friends and co-workers know about your book.”
