Boston Python Group: Fluent Python and Think Python

Hello Readers,

I tend to have a few books that I really like.  The usual one I recommend for beginners is:

Think Python by Allen Downey.

The one I tend to recommend for advanced Python programmers is Fluent Python:

The later just gets into so many cool little things about the Python language.  Dictionary comprehensions.  How to develop a card deck in a short class (with cool use of list comprehensions) and lots of interesting technicalities.  There is a reason it has 4.9 stars on O’Reilly Media.

Last night I provided some advice to Python beginners and mentioned the above two books.

Chris
