Book Review #11

Python Pocket Reference
Mark Lulz

I have Learning Python book and Programming Python book. They're good books. However, as tutorials go, they are too much. I don't blame Mark Lulz, the author, but those 3000 pages are too much for use as reference. There is another book: Python Pocket Reference. Unfortunately, I do not find much use for it. First of all, you need to have read Learning Python book in order to understand the terminology. Also, Python is surprisingly a thin language for something so complex. So, the pocket reference book did little to help me.

Bottom line? Get the excellent Learning Python book, and write your own Pocket reference book!
