This book is a starting point for all those who want to learn python and gui programming using QT toolkit, It's first part , about python it's full of useful and intersting information and details about this languag. The last 2 parts give a complex describtion of gui programming with PyQT. My recommendation to those who want to read this book is to start with the first part and then move to the second,3rd,4th also doing the exercises provided for each chapter.
