Book excerpts:

The word 'Dive' on Dive Into Python has already suggested that this book is not for newbies, for wimps, or For Dummies. It assumes a lot about you. You need to know at least one real object-oriented language, like Java, C++, or Delphi, and at least one scripting language, like Perl, Visual Basic, or JavaScript. And finally you must have installled Python for your operating system.

If you're just getting started programming, that does not mean that you can't learn Python. Python is an easy language to learn, but you should probably learn it somewhere else.

Reviews:

Amazon.com

:) "The author really understands the subject matter, and he really understands what is needed by readers who already have a strong programming background. Once you've worked your way through this book, you'll understand 1) Python, 2) Good programming practices in Python, and 3) Why Python has become such a success amongst professional programmers."
