Synopsis

Praise for Core Python Programming "The long-awaited second edition of Wesley Chun's Core Python Programming proves to be well worth the wait--its deep and broad coverage and useful exercises will help readers learn and practice good Python." --Alex Martelli, author of Python in a Nutshell and editor of Python Cookbook "There has been lot of good buzz around Wesley Chun's Core Python Programming. It turns out that all the buzz is well earned. I think this is the best book currently available for learning Python. I would recommend Chun's book over Learning Python (O'Reilly), Programming Python (O'Reilly), or The Quick Python Book (Manning)." --David Mertz, Ph.D., IBM DeveloperWorks(R) "I have been doing a lot of research [on] Python for the past year and have seen a number of positive reviews of your book. The sentiment expressed confirms the opinion that Core Python Programming is now considered the standard introductory text." --Richard Ozaki, Lockheed Martin "Finally, a book good enough to be both a textbook and a reference on the Python language now exists." --Michael Baxter, Linux Journal "Very well written.It is the clearest, friendliest book I have come across yet for explaining Python, and putting it in a wider context.

It does not presume a large amount of other experience. It does go into some important Python topics carefully and in depth. Unlike too many beginner books, it never condescends or tortures the reader with childish hide-and-seek prose games. [It] sticks to gaining a solid grasp of Python syntax and structure." --http://python.org bookstore Web site "[If ] I could only own one Python book, it would be Core Python Programming by Wesley Chun. This book manages to cover more topics in more depth than Learning Python but includes it all in one book that also more than adequately covers the core language. [If] you are in the market for just one book about Python, I recommend this book. You will enjoy reading it, including its wry programmer's wit. More importantly, you will learn Python. Even more importantly, you will find it invaluable in helping you in your day-to-day Python programming life. Well done, Mr. Chun!" --Ron Stephens, Python Learning Foundation "I think the best language for beginners is Python, without a doubt.My favorite book is Core Python Programming." --s003apr, MP3Car.com Forums "Personally, I really like Python.

It's simple to learn, completely intuitive, amazingly flexible, and pretty darned fast. Python has only just started to claim mindshare in the Windows world, but look for it to start gaining lots of support as people discover it. To learn Python, I'd start with Core Python Programming by Wesley Chun." --Bill Boswell, MCSE, Microsoft Certified Professional Magazine Online "If you learn well from books, I suggest Core Python Programming. It is by far the best I've found. I'm a Python newbie as well and in three months time I've been able to implement Python in projects at work (automating MSOffice, SQL DB stuff, etc.)." --ptonman, Dev Shed Forums "Python is simply a beautiful language. It's easy to learn, it's cross-platform, and it works. It has achieved many of the technical goals that Java strives for. A one-sentence description of Python would be: 'All other languages appear to have evolved over time--but Python was designed.' And it was designed well. Unfortunately, there aren't a large number of books for Python.The best one I've run across so far is Core Python Programming." --Chris Timmons, C. R.

Timmons Consulting "If you like the Prentice Hall Core series, another good full-blown treatment to consider would be Core Python Programming. It addresses in elaborate concrete detail many practical topics that get little, if any, coverage in other books." --Mitchell L Model, MLM Consulting "Core Python Programming is an amazingly easy read! The liberal use of examples helps clarify some of the more subtle points of the language. And the comparisons to languages with which I'm already familiar (C/C++/Java) get you programming in record speed." --Michael Santos, Ph.D., Green Hills Software The Complete Developer's Guide to Python--Fully Updated for Python 2.5*New to Python?The definitive guide to Python development for experienced programmers*Covers core language features thoroughly, including those found in the latest Python releases*Learn advanced topics such as regular expressions, networking, multithreading, GUI, and Web/CGI*Includes brand-new chapters on database, Internet, Jython, and COM Client programming*Presents hundreds of code samples and practical exercises to strengthen your Python skills Python is an agile, robust, expressive, fully object-oriented, extensible, and scalable programming language.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A clear, organized, detailed, exposition - not a quick dive 12. Juli 2011
Von E. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are trying to decide whether to get Core Python or Dive into Python, you will find the answer in the way you like to learn.

Dive into Python if for the impatient programmer, that wants to get started as quickly as possible, knowing that you can always go back to the docs when you get stuck. I tried reading Dive into Python, and I found it unpleasant, because I don't like to learn that way, leaving me with too many questions unanswered.

Core Python is for those of us that like to know the rules before we start playing the game. Mr Chun does an excellent job of communicating the details that you would find in a language specification, but in comfortable language that makes it easy to understand and remember the concepts.

The comparisons to Bruce Eckel (Thinking in Java) are appropriate, Chun and Eckel are similar in style, though Chun seems to me more clear, and less verbose.

The table of contents is well thought out, and when concepts in one chapter are closely related to another chapter Chun helpfully references where you would look to read more on the related topic. The code snippets are appropriately brief, containing the necessary detail for the concept at hand.

This is an excellent book, as Mr. Chun does well what he sets out to do. If you are interested in a detailed exposition that will continue to serve as a great reference, I recommend Core Python.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent reference for Python 15. November 2009
Von Steven Morley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Summary: Core Python Programming lives next to my keyboard.

Having been programming, in a scientific role, for a decade, I recently took up Python. This book was the text used with a short course on Python I took, and I can see why. As other reviewers have said, Python has excellent documentation; what the Python documentation usually lacks is both practical examples and an explanation of why. This book gives both of those things and in a very readable way. It's been the fastest and simplest way for me to get to grips with object-oriented concepts, and has been a great reference for most things I've needed to do.

Drawbacks: If you've never programmed before, this probably isn't for you - perhaps try Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional, Second Edition, which covers programming fundamentals while teaching you Python. For those with a little more background, I really like Dive Into Python 3 (free under a GNU license, so Google it). For experienced Python programmers, this perhaps doesn't have sufficient depth as it's not specialized in any one area. If you want to learn Python for basic data analysis and visualization (without a need/desire to do more), then go for Beginning Python Visualization: Crafting Visual Transformation Scripts (Books for Professionals by Professionals).

This really is a good CORE Python book. It's not really a beginner's guide, or a specialist text on any given niche topic. It's a great reference and that's it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not for experienced programmers 9. September 2007
Von IBMT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This may be a good book for beginners. For experienced programmers who just want to know what's new and unique of Python, it's hard to find what you need fast. I found Dive into Python is better for me.

1.0 von 5 Sternen disappointed: bad production 12. Juni 2008
Von gmale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I got this book because of its many positive reviews, but I'm not happy with it.

I'm a professional programmer. C++ is my main language, but I know C, Java, Perl, Smalltalk. I have used Python a fair amount in the past; I wanted to go through a Python book because I'm starting a new project in Python and the language has changed since I last used it.

My main criticism of this book (2nd edition, 3rd printing) is its sloppy production. It is loaded with typos, broken code, and other errors. I'm surprised that most other reviewers didn't comment on this fact. The author knows about many of these errors and has corrections posted on the web, where he airily excuses the book's errors as being "due to lack of time or priority during the highly-compressed editing phase." If he or the publisher really cared, many of these errors would have been corrected by the third printing. (Many would not require resetting even a full line of type.)

As other reviewers have said, Chun's writing is rather disorganized and conversational. That's not to my taste, but evidently it suits lots of people. For the length of the book, the depth is not great.

Some reviewers say that this is the best book they have seen for beginning programmers. Maybe they are not familiar with Kernighan and Ritchie's classic, _The C Programming Language_. That book, in my opinion, is the standard of excellence.

Overall I prefer Beazley's _Python Essential Reference_ 3rd edition to Chun's book. The Reference is terse and maybe not suitable for a novice, but it is thorough, accurate, well organized, and carefully produced. Chun does provide exercises after each chapter; that is the book's main positive feature, in my opinion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you want to code python, this is the book. 14. Dezember 2010
Von Seth Barkan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As an intermediate programmer(mainly familiar with adapting scripting languages like bash and perl to perform basic - and much more complex - tasks on my computer ranging from sys admin stuff to creating my own database systems - foolishly), finding Core Python was a revelation for me, and is absolutely THE book I'd recommend to anyone who wants to learn the language. I've read 1000's of pages of Python texts, and paid hundreds of dollars, and wasted months and months doing so. Core Python would have saved me these grotesque expenditures, and only bothered writing this in the hopes of sparing other intermediate and beginning programmers from my fate. Here's the deal:

My background:
20 years in computing, 7 in linux, *no* background in object-oriented programming, know *very* *basic* Java, once wrote a small program in C++ by following instructions in high school (to whit: NONE), bunch of web-design, and have comprehensive and extensive understanding (both practical and theoretical) of MIDI/music technology in general, with which I have been working for the past 14ish years (including writing my own parsing programs and building front-ends for numerous practical applications), almost a year of building my own database programs from scratch (to read: bash... from nothing). So, I'm totally no one I'd brag about (not a code jedi or anything), but I do know how to program, and know how to learn a new language... and, if you're at all like me, then you will love Core Python. But, I'm getting sidetracked. I think it's always important to know WHY someone wanted to learn a language before reading their review of a survey course in the language so...

Why I wanted to learn python:
I had gotten back into programming (and had returned to Linux after a long hiatus) after discovering how far ye olde OS had come in regards to music/audio programming. I was now able to leverage the scripting power of Bash to accomplish things that, years before, would have been unheard of. This made the scripting world of old new again, and I was addicted to programming all over again. Then, I wanted to port some of my more complicated database programs to other systems and really learn a full-fledged oop language at the same time. I had heard great things about Python, so that's where I went. I decided to learn Python...

The horrible world of useless and expensive python books:
And I ran into a brick wall of horrible books that were as expensive as they were useless. I was no stranger to new languages, and yet I COULD NOT FIND A BOOK that could walk me through Python in any logical, reliable, or efficacious way. I've read all four of the major texts on the subject, and have found them all to be terrible at actually teaching the language (and each has generally failed me in it's own specific way... with the exception of the Lutz O'Reilly "Learning Python Book," which is such a quagmire that's it's difficult to decide if it's simply an incomprehensibly ludicrous exercise in absurdism or the worst attempt at creating a survey of any language I have ever read). These books were so disappointing... I was focused, ready, had a lot of previous programming experience, the willingness for rigorous study, and the understanding of the process of learning a new language, yet I could not find a book that was at all adequate. UNtil I read about Core Python on some obscure university thread... the thread had been replied to by Mr Chun, and his explanation of the problem was so elegant, and with a demeanor so (unfortunately) lacking in most current python circles, that I had to give python one more try... If only I had started with Core Python, I wouldn';t have wasted hundreds of dollars (and, worse, FAR TOO MANY HOURS) with books written to ride the Python craze. CORE PYTHON is the only book I've found that approaches the language in a comprehensive fashion, with limited wind, outlining the essential functions for programming, organized in such a way that it can get anyone with experience in a different language up and running *VERY* fast (a kind of choose-your-own-adventure structure to programming that isn't bewildering or obtrusive). Likewise, it doubles as an excellent reference. The best part, though, is that it provides excellent sample code, and operates with the underlying assumption that you expect to learn by coding yourself (hence the excellent excercises at the end of each chapter; something that very few of the major python books I've read have bothered with at all, and, of the few which have, haven't been done well).

In short, this is one of the best books to introduce you to (as the title says) Core Python. If you want to learn to code in Python, regardless of previous (or lack of previous) progamming experience, there is no other text that truly teaches through an incremental process and then expects you to code at the conclusion of the sections. I could rrant and rave about how great I think it is, but let me simply say that, when the edition covering 3.1 comes out, I can't wait to buy and devour it (and keep it as my new standard reference for the syntax of the new version of the language).

The only other book that comes close to Core Python is "Beginning Python" but that doesn't take quite the serious and comprehensive and details oriented approach as CP.

5 stars.
