This was a solid book. It's very much a "foundations" book in that's it's more for beginners to using Python for network applications.

Generally, it's a nice introduction and overview, and useful for refreshing one's mind about network protocols, sockets, multitasking, etc. in Python.
Good, clear explanations, but the book is a mile wide and an inch deep.
