A Really Great Tool!

This book is clear, concise and gives understandable examples. That is not to say it contains entry level information, just the ability to explain complex concepts so an entry level programmer can understand them and start putting them to use. RECOMMEND!!

Great for ideas

A great book for beginners, lots of ideas & samples. I learned so much from this, it would be easier to do a new page than make additions to the exsisting one.

Utterly Boring :-(((

I liked the first edition of this book, which gave a decentinroduction into Python at a little more than 300 pages. When the 2nd edition came out I ordered a copy blindly, because I expected a lot more information on latest Python features and modules from its 580 pages. However, this book disappointed me very much. The presentation of Python basics has been bloated so much that it just bored me to death. For example, it takes Mr Lutz 189 pages and 11 chapters to get to functions basics, which is twice as much as in the first edition (now compare this to 24 pages in Kernighan/Ritchie's C-book). On the other hand, there are only a couple of pages on new-style classes. I cannot imagine an experienced programmer who likes to sift through all that fluff. I am also wondering if this book is exciting for newbies, but maybe todays newbies are different. This book reminds me a lot of "Programming Python" (by the same author), which I also hated for its tediuos and bloated style.

It's just that easy!

Castro's presentation of HTML 4 was all I needed to secure accurate proficiency in web site creation. What I appreciated most about the book was the absense of ancient history, and increased insight towards current web standards and the near future of HTML. Great for people new to HTML and for a reference guide used by pro's, HTML for the World Wide Web is deserving of what it has been acclaimed as so far: the best guide to HTML
