Re: Python books

It may or may not be up your alley, but Iâm a fan of Mark Guzdialâs books on media computation, in regard to Python:


Theyâre a bit more âfunâ than the typical intro book, which is why I like them. I donât know if it will meet your specific needs, but itâs one to consider.

Can anyone recommend a book on Python from which a *complete novice*
can learn decent programming skills?  I've looked through tutorials
on the web with titles like "Python for the Absolute Beginner" but
found them somewhat dry - they miss a careful explanation on types,
variables and sequence that leaves those without such concepts
floundering.  I'm looking for something that teaches *programming*
and uses Python just as a vehicle for this.  Is there something
out there that does this?

Many thanks,
