Partly a tutorial and partly a reference book. I summarize information in tables and give a lot of short example programs. I also jump right into things and fill in background information as I go, rather than covering the background material first.

This book describes Python, an open-source general-purpose interpreted programming language, available for all Platforms. Python is a high-level, structured programming language that can be used for a wide variety of programming tasks.

The focus is on introducing programming techniques and developing good habits. Our approach avoids some more esoteric features of Python and concentrates on the programming basics that transfer directly to other imperative programming languages.
