Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language
Author: Mark Summerfield
Well written, concise, complete.
The change from Python 2.x to 3.x is a very important one but this change on itself would warrent quite a bit less than this tomes hefty 525 pages.This book, however, aims to be "a complete introduction to the Python language" and the author has done an excellent job: He introduces Python in a clear and concise style, covering all essentials like datatypes and control structures and moves on to guide the reader into the wild and wonderful of Python, a world colored by classes, list comprehensions and generators. Python comes "batteries included" and although this book is not a reference guide to all available Python modules, major focus areas from file handling through threading and networking to regular expressions and user interfaces are covered very well.
