"...a compact--but exceptionally comprehensive--guide...The content is presented in concise format but without skimping on discussions...Python in a Nutshell is not a definitive reference, but I doubt that anything more comprehensive will be found in a single text."
-- Major Keary, Book News

"...a fast paced and tightly written book...This book will complement the other extensive documentation that can be seen on the desks of Python programmers' whether novice, expert or professionals."
-- Ganadeva Bandyopadhyay, Desicritics.org

"A fine quick reference which should be on every Python programmer's desk."
-- James Cox, Midwest Book Review

"I expected this book to give me clear and thorough documentation of Python’s standard library, which is exactly what I got...I would recommend this book to programmers with experience in other languages who want to try python. Those who prefer a hardcopy reference on their desk rather than online resources will love this book."
-- Andrew Albert, CSGSA O'Reilly User Group

"Overall, this book is a great buy. If you are already an avid programmer or intend to become one in the future, you will not be sad having this book about Python on your shelf."
