A breezy and irreverent introduction to programming in Python, very much in the distinctive Head First style -unabashed puns meet Dorling Kindersly for some joyful, hip and wacky edutainment.

Even though I would not recommend the book as a textbook for CS majors, because I think that in its relentless drive to be entertaining, its more serious asides dont strike deep enough, it is very much a fun book to read and covers -as most Head First books deceptively manage to do- a lot of ground.

Great book for beginners - not boring nor dry, and gets some basic concepts through in a practical and interesting way. It's a soft introduction to programming and best appreciated by someone new to programming. I actually stopped reading it not because I didn't enjoy it anymore but because I've got so many other programming books to read and am not a beginner.
