Like so many reviewers here, I was disappointed in this book. I did think the introduction showed promise, but the book moved along so tediously, I kept finding myself saying "yea, yea, yea---get on with it already!"
I wish Mr. Lutz would keep in mind that a reader can re-read a point not understood the first time around; it's really irritating to have the author repeat and repeat and repeat the same damn point over and over.
Perhaps this point bears repeating. Just kidding, but if I wrote like Mr. Lutz I would assume you didn't get it the first time around and make you suffer through three renditions of the same litte essay.
Oh, for the straight forward exposition of Kernighan and Plauger or the subtle wit of Larry Wall---now those guys can write!

This is one of O'Reilly's worst books.
In the introduction, where Mark is giving a demo the Python language, he gives Programming examples without explaining the constructs the programs use or how they achieve their goals in terms of those constructs. It is impossible to understand the points he is trying to make.
The editing of the book is just plain sloppy. The beginning is not what a beginning should be and I am so put off by the beginning I hesitate to read the rest of the book.
I'm not sure why O'Reilly let this book get to press. Most of the books I have from them are excellent.

Ich kann mich in der Beurteilung den Vorgaengern nur anschliessen. Das Buch enttaeuscht aufgrund der Tatsache, dass es fuer ein Tutorial zu lang und fuer ein Referenzhandbuch zu ungeordnet ist. Hinzu kommt, dass es, aufgrund des Erscheinungsdatums, in interessanten Bereichen wie etwa der SWIG-Benutzung nicht mehr aktuell ist.

When I saw the title of this book, I was anticipating something along the line of ORA's excellent "Programming Perl". "Programming Perl" is a great reference that catalogs language features and programming idioms in a concise, easy -to-find manner.
"Programming Python" leaves much to be desired. While it is an excellent tutorial introduction, it is not of the same caliber as my well-worn copy of "Programming Perl". It is designed to be read through, not used for reference. It is exceedingly hard to locate information in a hurry, and many language features were not even documented any place I could find (for instance, class destructors).
A good book, but a misleading title.

I really like the O'Reilly books - I work as a professional programmer and the number of times they have helped me out is countless. That made this book all the more disappointing.
The style is all over the place - halfway between the "Dummies" series (which are very good - in their place) and the traditional O'Reilly "for programmers, by programmers" style. While I wouldn't carp about style of a technical book if it were at least clear unfortunately the prose here is so bad it makes the book almost impenetrable. I just couldn't get the hang of the language from this - and wouldn't advise others to try. There have got ot be easier ways than this to learn.

I thought this would be similar to Programming Perl, both a good introduction to the language *and* a decent reference. Unfortunately, it does neither task well.
It fails as a reference because 1) it is poorly organized: information on each concept (printing, for example), is scattered throughout the book; 2) the index is atrocious. There is no way to find the key description of any part of the language using the index, and I often find important concepts in the book that are not in the index.
The poor index, combined with the scattered organization, means I'm constantly frustrated when I want to look up some particular element of the language.
As an introduction, the book is OK. I would have liked to see some meatier code examples. As another reviewer mentioned, the examples are more about the syntax of the language than actual applications that you might learn from. This is a style point -- if you learn best from large chunks of example code, this is not the book for you.
Also, key modules (sys and math, for example) are barely mentioned.

While I love the language and was hungry for documentation this wasn't it. The docs that come with the language are easier to follow. As an earlier reviewer points out, you can't find what you need when you need it. A 900 page book with a 14 page index isn't much of a reference manual.

(For the full review, see <a href="[...] Dobbs Journal</a>) I hope that Programming Python will help win Python many new converts. Like most O'Reilly & Associates books, it is well written, superbly edited, and informative. Lutz introduces the Python language and its major libraries (of which there are many), and shows how to embed Python in C and vice versa. There are many example programs, all clearly explained, and a CD-ROM with the whole Python release for Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX.

Python is a great programming language and Mark Lutz did a lot for it, by writing this big textbook. Still, I would have wished the book to be more systematic, especially having chapter titles which later on helped me to find things again. In his next book: "Learning Python" he implemented more logic:-)

This is easily one of the best programming books ever written, and a great introduction to both Python and object oriented programming. As its preface says, it's more of a tutorial than a reference manual, but reference books and manuals can be found elsewhere if desired.
