Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

This is a wonderful beginner's book. It provides interactive training that the staff found enjoyable to review. They liked the ablility to click on the "Show Me" button and the software would show them how to perform a function. They also liked be able to go at their own pace and the ability to review a topic as many times as needed. You can't go wrong for the money.

Is this a joke?

Benninga successfully bridges academic formulas and real-life scenarios in this admittedly fairly expensive book. However, given the wealth of information and immediate applicability I definitely think it's worth the money. Most importantly, by compiling all the major (and some lesser known) formulas as well as their associated VBA code into one book, this is certainly going to be part of my office library.

Title: Python Essential Reference (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Sams
Authors: David Beazley
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Valuable reference work

David has done a great job condensing the need-to-known Python language material down into the first hundred pages of the book. The code examples are great, there are no graphics, and there are plenty of well-formatted tables for operators, methods, and the rest.
The second half of the book is Appendix A, which covers the Python's standard library. I think it's odd that an entire section of 200+ pages is considered an appendix, but that is only a minor flaw.
The reason that I give the book only four stars and not five is that Appendix A could use some more of the clever formatting applied to the first part of the book to make it more accessible. The information is all there, but it could be formatted a little better. O'Reilly does a great job with that sort of thing.
Overall, this is a great handy reference for Python. Far better than the online documentation. If you are an occasional Python programmer, like me, you will find this book a great resource because you can get a quick refresher whenever you need it.
