I think this is an ok book. It covers a lot of python in-depth, but not as much as I would think. There's a lot of basic explanations that I don't think should be on this book.

I've read a similar book by the same author, Pro Django, and looks like some of the parts are borrowed from each book.

It's an interesting book however, but I fell is not a must.
Update: I finally finished this, and refer to it quite a bit since it's easy to carry a bag full of tech books on the kindle now. I think the bits on advanced python code patterns and usage of things like decorators and closures and all the functools stuff were the most useful to me. I was able to begin using these techniques right after reading the chapter, and I am always finding new ways to apply them in both my day job and the game development I'm invariably always working on.

I think this is ok book for python developers. Covers a lot of features in depth. Took me quite a lot of time to read this book.
