Lean Python: Learn Just Enough Python to Build Useful Tools

Learn only the essential aspects of Python without cluttering up your mind with features you may never use.

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.
