Fluent Python: Clear, Concise, and Effective Programming

Rate this book
Python's simplicity lets you become productive quickly, but this often means you aren't using everything it has to offer. With this hands-on guide, you'll learn how to write effective, idiomatic Python code by leveraging its best and possibly most neglected features. Author Luciano Ramalho takes you through Python's core language features and libraries, and shows you how to make your code shorter, faster, and more readable at the same time.

Many experienced programmers try to bend Python to fit patterns they learned from other languages, and never discover Python features outside of their experience. With this book, those Python programmers will thoroughly learn how to become proficient in Python 3.

This book covers:



Python data model: understand how special methods are the key to the consistent behavior of objects

Data structures: take full advantage of built-in types, and understand the text vs bytes duality in the Unicode age

Functions as objects: view Python functions as first-class objects, and understand how this affects popular design patterns

Object-oriented idioms: build classes by learning about references, mutability, interfaces, operator overloading, and multiple inheritance

Control flow: leverage context managers, generators, coroutines, and concurrency with the concurrent.futures and asyncio packages

Metaprogramming: understand how properties, attribute descriptors, class decorators, and metaclasses work

Among the books that are currently populating my Goodread's wishlist are no less than 20 titles dedicated to the Python language. They range from Django up to pandas, passing through Twisted and Test-Driver Development. Time is limited, so they often end up waiting in queue for months. But when I've seen Fluent Python on that shelf I had to make it mine immediately and put it in front of that queue. Getting through this book took me several months, not only because we are talking about some 700 hundreds good pages, but mostly due to the fact that it covers advanced topics that most of the Pythonists currently living on planet Earth never heard of in their life. Fluent Python is one of those books that you must taste little by little or you get devoured by those fierce topics and examples.

Released late this summer, Fluent Python is the latest work of Ramalho, a name that should sound familiar to those that have been already diving deeply into, allow me the term, Python's high-end features, powerful things, such as coroutines, that most developers never heard of in their life. Those that did probably hope never being tested on them during a job interview. And that's pretty much what the book is all about. Neither style nor the the basics of the language, but very advanced features. Quite a rare book indeed, since almost all of the Python books available introduce the readers to the language and don't get past Object Oriented Programming.

An excellent text overall, no doubts. Not for the faint of heart. Still, I am a bit puzzled by the fact that some chapters look extremely simple, others cover quirks and intricacies that you can probably live without, unless you dare touching the very core of the language ,and that get you to reach the end of a chapter with that what the hell expression on your face. The chapter covering abstract classes is an example of the former. Don't get me wrong, it's interesting and the examples well laid out. Still, it looks a basic concept that doesn't fit this kind of book.

A couple of words on the examples: they are throughout the whole book well done. The author often presents the same concepts in different flavors or does work on the same example and improves it as concepts are taken into the discussion. The code is intense but easy to follow. Key lines are extensively explained later on, so that the reader won't miss that specific features that makes it all possible. There are so many gems that you will probably end up writing most of that code down to make it yours. This is actually the best thing the reader can do. Try it, modify it, assimilate it, master it.

Among the many topics covered there are two that are worth mentioning: the first is chapter four, which covers strings, Unicode and bytes. Marvelous, simply marvelous. The examples, the explanations. So clear and to the point. You definitely get away from it with a deep understanding of how strings work in Python 2.7 and 3. The second is that dedicated to futures. Actually it's the whole topic, which spans several chapters at the very end of the book. The authors shows how working with threads and subprocesses improve the efficiency of an application, and how easy it is to exploit them through the futures that are now available in the language. He does gives us a very interesting example in many different flavors, showing us how the code and performance change. Great.

Decorators and closures are also well described, even if not as good as the aforementioned topics. In that sense, the author does complement what we find about the subject in Effective Python: 59 Specific Ways to Write Better Python, another must have for any serious Pythonist.

Overall, a great Python book. A must have for any Python developer interested in getting the most out of the language.

This book is a deep dive into the inner workings of the python language. It covers all the topics of python, from primitive data types to advanced metaprogramming with great detail and example.

The first edition covers python 3.5 and the second edition covers python 3.10. The second edition additionally covers @dataclass, the new asyinc-await syntax in concurrency, type annotations, and much more.

Chapters' contents are written from bottom to top. Namely, each concept is first explained with simple examples and advances to a more complicated form, built on top of what's already said. So, I'd advise you to read chapters page by page.

If you read this book, you'll be able to answer almost all python-specific questions in the interviews. It would also teach you great features that are specific to python which maybe absent in other languages

All in all, I think this book is a must-read if you want to gain a true mastery in python

Be advised: This is not a beginner's book at all, you'd better have at least 2-3 years of python experience before jumping into code.

It is always a pleasure to read books writen by people who really understand a programming language an have good didactics. This book is one of these.

The author writes about Python with passion but without hiding its flaws and pitfalls. As I read it, I could understand some concepts that seemed a little "magical" to me and discover that some concepts didn't work the way I thought.

I recommend this book to everyone who already knows Python but wants to understand it for real.

"Fluent Python - Clear, Concise, and Effective Programming, 2nd Edition" by Luciano Ramalho is one of the best Python books I've read since I started programming in Python back in 2007.

But I have to warn you that it is probably not the first, not even the second book you should read if you're getting started with Python. Even if you're an experienced programmer coming from a different programming language background, there are other resources to help you get up to speed with Python and showcase its good use for domains ranging from machine learning and deep learning to system administration, automation, DevOps, network management automation, etc. as well as general Python performance tuning and best practices.

This book deserves a slow reading and experienced Python programmers will appreciate the insights provided by the author: It's been more than 6 years since the first edition and Python language itself with its standard library progressed a lot, sometimes at a breakneck speed. For experienced software developers and Python programmers who want to dive deep into the core language features of Python in 2022 and upcoming years, this book is probably the perfect reference.

A careful reading shows that the author not only knows the core topics of the book very well, but also has a very good grasp of history and context of other influential programming languages, e.g. when refers to the mind-blowing The Art of the Metaobject Protocol, or when he compares the some aspects of concurrent programming in Python to Java and Go.

Another shining feature of the book is the amount of careful thought and effort spent on pedagogy, building crystal clear examples and contrasting different approaches to really drive home the message in chapters such as "1. The Python Data Model", "5. Data Class Builders", "17. Iterables, Iterators, and Generators", "20. Concurrency Models in Python", "21. Concurrency with Futures", and "22. Asynchronous Programming". The chapters on optional typing and type hints also deserve similar praise.

I found myself marking a lot of sections, taking notes and visiting almost every resource mentioned in "Further Reading" section of each chapter. The author did a great job for directing the reader to more specialized books as well as online tutorials, guides, HOW-TOs, presentations and videos.

I can easily imagine myself coming back to some of the chapters not only to solidify my understanding about some core and modern Python features but also referring to them when I'm discussing issues with fellow software developers and automation experts (in fact, I already referred to this book more than once during such discussions!).

Python programming language will turn 31 years old in 2022, and as long as it continues to attract such great authors showcasing its features, the friendly and knowledgeable community will continue to grow and attract software developers from all walks of life. Let's enjoy such nice books and go build clear, concise, and effective solutions to all sorts of automation problems! ;)

I've just now finished reading this awesome book!

It took me several months (started reading the early release in January), there is a richness of information that it's probably a good idea to interleave with some practice to let the information sink in.
The book helped me greatly, because throughout the period I've been doing a lot of not only coding but also code reviewing, and I feel I've grown a lot as a programmer in the process.

One of the great things about this book is that after showing you the main points, it has pointers to great curated material for further reading. This also explains why it was hard for me to finish it: I got distracted reading some of the pointed resources. =)

A minor nitpicking about the printed edition is that sometimes the text references color in figures which aren't colored (at least in my copy) -- a small thing that doesn't compromise the overall experience and something I hope is fixed in the next printed editions.

If you're a Python programmer wanting to improve your chops, this book is what you want: it's a deep dive into the Python way, your designs will be better after this, your code will be more powerful, concise and probably easier to read too. It will help you to avoid many common traps that people coming from other languages are prone to fall into.

Anyway, it has been a marvelous investment reading the book through the end, I'm pretty sure I'll be coming back to it. ;)

To the reader wondering whether they should wait for the 2nd Edition releasing in September this year...

DON'T WAIT, READ IT NOW!

This book still absolutely holds up, there are just a couple things to note.

Chapter 3 on dictionaries needs a bit of an update since the implementation is now a compact dictionary, which is different from the Python 3.4 dictionary.

I am curious to see Ramalho's editing on the coroutines and asyncio chapters. He's right on the fact that coroutines are syntactically confusing in Python, but with asyncio's introduction with await and async declaration, I wonder if there will be any structural changes to the chapter.

Lastly, the latter half of Chapter 21 on Class Metaprogramming will be edited. Metaclass programming is confusing to begin with, and the omission of __init_subclass__ due to being Python 3.4, makes this concept even harder to apply.

Other than that, this book still feasts and will ultimately change your perspective on programming in Python. I'd consider reading Slatkin's Effective Python 2e before or concurrently with this book.

Also, you can make an O'reilly account and see the unreleased version of the 2nd edition. As of now, he is at Chapter 16 (?). There is a new chapter on Type Annotations and Data Classes.

This is excellent reference material for intermediate to advanced Python programmers looking to deepen their understanding of the many functions and layers of Python.

The book aims to explain some more intricate aspects of Python and the standard library. The author does great job explaining technical topics and conveys how true pythonic code should feel like. All chapters are well structured, likewise the presented code is well arranged and commented. At the end of each chapter the content is put into context of other programming languages, which I found tremendous. The book is very captivating; I was drawn to it as if I had been reading a novel. I would highly recommend it to anyone who want to get comprehensive introduction to the world of Python (basic knowledge is imperative though).

Highly recommended for intermediate python programmers. Some of the material is heavy and does take work and additional research to sink in as the author explores the heart of the language under the covers. I also found some material incomprehensible - more so due to my own inexperience. But complex chapters are explained clearly with tons of examples and also historical context which is an added bonus. Particularly enjoyed the chapter on Dynamic attributes with excellent examples on reading JSON effectively. Another notable chapter was Concurrency with futures which had highly practical examples of scripts downloading files using threads to illustrate the concept. Overall, a great reference to own and go back to while dealing with challenging concepts.

finally read this cover to cover (only took me two years!). a couple of things:

Python is a beautiful language. as this book notes, it’s easy for beginners and practical for professionals. the language has insane depth and capability while maintaining its simplistic and predictable syntax/design in even its more obscure components (and without preferring consistency too much over usability).

the book itself is really well written. it does a very good job of covering a very wide variety of more intermediate topics with real-world examples. as someone with a pretty decent amount of experience in python, it was nice to read something less targeted towards beginners.

now if only I could convince myself to actually really do something with this knowledge haha :/

Excellent book for experienced programmer who wants to learn Python in-depth.

I have been writing Python for more than a decode. But I never considered myself a Python programmer as I never spent effort and time to understand the design philosophies and underlying design of Python.

Fluent Python, unlike other books, doesn't bore you with the language syntax and how to write Python for common programming function. Instead, it teaches the Python's underlying idea behind Python and discusses the pros/cons comparing with other programming languages. It also teaches the Pythonic way of achieving common programming tasks.

Best book about programming language I've read so far. Although a bit aged, it surely isn't outdated. A lot of the concepts discussed in the book are still valid. It teaches not only how to write an idiomatic Python code, but also some of the inner workings of the language/interpreter itself. Looking forward to the 2nd edition.

Good Python programmers ("pythonists") know how to use Python features in ways not usual in other languages to achieve greatness. This is what this book is about. It covers a lot of ground, but it is not a cookbook or a collection of tricks. You will find not only in deep descriptions of Python features but, sometimes more important, why they exist the way they are.

It is a long book, but the writing is so good it is a joy to read. Examples are jewels of simplicity, clarity and flexibility.

Just make sure that you are ready for this book. This is not a book for beginners, you will need some experience with programming and with Python to fully appreciate it.

One of the best programming books that I read.

It is very complete and very dense, so I recommend reading it slowly, taking notes and practicing as you go.

Great book to have as a reference too.

This is an incredible book for those coming in with an already intermediate knowledge of python.

The author Ramalho has a very distinct and personal way of writing, almost as if he is your peer helping you work through the concepts rather than a teacher. There are also numerous excerpts and tid-bits about the history of python and the developers that have contributed to it. He really makes you feel like you are a part of the python community just by reading, which I have never experienced from a textbook before.

A lot of the language features and concepts he goes over are really not the sort of things most developers will be writing in their day-to-day work (unless you are creating frameworks), and the author is the first to admit that many of the features you really *shouldn't* be using unless you are creating frameworks. Still, it is invaluable to truly understand the inner workings of the language, and to get a feel for the magic that is going on behind the scenes of your favourite libraries.

This is an essential read for anyone hoping to take their python learning and understanding to the next level. The sections on concurrent programming were in particular eye-opening as I think many developers may be used to asynchronous paradigms in javascript, but have never applied them to their python projects before.

Outstanding advanced coverage of the Python language by a deep expert.

Sometime it's difficult to find learning resources that go beyond the beginner/intermediate material covered well by most programming books. Luciano covers a smattering of intermediate/advanced Python topics in "Fluent Python" that is exactly what I was looking for after reading "Introducing Python" and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Python". Of particular interest are the chapters on Iterables/Iterators/Generators, Coroutines, and Attribute Descriptors. Learning that methods are merely bound functions partially applied to "self" via a attribute descriptor (with __get__) was a big "ahah" moment for me in understanding the Python data model.

If I had to offer one criticism, it would be the format in which sometimes lengthy code samples are annotated - using numbers causes the reader to constant flip back and forth in a way that's somewhat jarring. I'd much rather there just be in-line comments that explain the progression of code.

One of the best Python books I've read, and one of the best tech books generally I've read. With a focus on writing correct and idiomatic Python code, Fluent Python also covers and provides good general insights into concurrency, metaclasses, and writing good clean maintainable code. Highly recommended.

Really good, but also very long. This book took me two months to complete, but it was worth it.
tThere was a surprising and uncommon thing, as I perceived it - the author tells you not only what and how, but also *why*, linking at the same time to discussions, PEPs and other sources from the history of Python. Highly recommended to current Python users.

Quite a deep book on programming and programming concepts. I'm likely going to have to re-read several parts of this book again to completely understand what's going on, but this book is quite a good reading if you want to learn how to think about Python in a more meaningful way.

Of course, we programmers know that everything we could want to know is out there, in fragmentary form, on the web. But I have a tediously fastidious mind that likes to keep the distinction clear between what I know and what I have yet to find out. As such, books are my preferred approach to a systematic learning process. I would have been very grateful then if someone had told me at the start of my Python journey that what and all I needed to read was the Tutorial at python.org, David Beasley's epically concise Python Distilled, and this, the 'lizard book'. This book demands a close, paragraph by paragraph reading and maybe some re-reading of some sections till full or at least deeper understanding dawns. After this book there isn't really anywhere to go except the source code and the dry and voluminous language docs. Whatever isn't actually in the book is there on the accompanying fpy.li website.

A first point is that this is not a book for the beginner. One needs to have a reasonable grasp of the language having worked a while with it, being able to muddle along, but also knowing one is just muddling along and wishing to get things onto a more solid foundation.

As such, I'm anxious not to let prospective readers be put off by the review that asserts that the author does not get to the point. There is no flab in this book. It is a big book, but a serious programmer could only wish that the book was even bigger and even more detailed. Python is as much an ideology about how to do things properly as a programming language. It is deceptively easy to muddle along in Python on the basis of what one has already come to know in more 'primitive' programming languages. But for the programmer determined to get the best from a language that has a near endless toolbox of subtle features and constructs the learning curve goes far deeper and longer than a superficial comprehension can suspect. Perhaps that reviewer is thinking about the soapbox sections at the end of each chapter in which the author considers the merits or not of particular decisions made in the complex, democratic language design process? If so, it should be pointed out that even here the author is inviting the reader to think more deeply and clearly about why such features were implemented as they were and what the alternatives might be.

I have two complaints, notwithstanding which I still regard the book as indispensable and insubstitutable. Firstly, I wish very much there was a hardcover edition because the kind of reading this book demands means that the paperback cover is not going to survive even as much as a first reading. I would also like to see, perhaps in a future edition, a more comprehensive and systematic index. Again and again, one encounters situations where we know we have read something about this in 'the lizard book' but finding the requisite nugget or gem is not always that easy. The book does not work particularly well as a reference.

A final point is that the book is a great pleasure to read without any loss of clarity. Although the author's knowledge is clearly formidable, he invites the reader to accompany him on a journey as a fellow traveller, pointing out the many small discoveries he has made in his own passage. One quickly comes to feel assured that even where one's own understanding might falter, everything you need to achieve understanding is written down there if one just reads it carefully enough. Few technical authors pass this test. The man is a natural teacher who always places himself in the point of view of the student and proceeds from there.

A huge, rigorous, fractally detailed but profoundly enjoyable journey of a book. As simple as possible but no simpler. The mighty and beautiful 'lizard book'

I really enjoyed this book from Luciano. It is structured very well, making it suitable for future reference as well, but thanks to the numerous examples with call-outs and great skill in explaining concepts, it was a good read from start to finish as well.

For absolute beginners this book is definitely too hard, but for those who have some experience, the book is bound to offer you something, and very likely to offer you a lot. Much which it teaches was familiar to me, but sometimes it doesn't hurt to repeat. Moreover, I'm not the expert Luciano is, so some stuff I knew quite well, I now know the absolute core fundamentals of.

There was also stuff I barely touched in Python though, or simply never heard of. Usually I mean small things (liked named slicing, and the `shelve` and `bisect` libraries), but some big topics are treated so in-depth that it taught me a lot (about class meta programming and the subtleties of concurrent programming in Python for example).

On the downside, the book does try to cover many, many topis, and despite the good structuring and explanations, sometimes it tends to have a tough time choosing between going in-depth all the way, or remaining at the surface. Also, in the final chapters I feel there were a lot more typo's and potentially some minor mistakes that have made the already difficult stuff in there slightly more challenging even. All in all, however, these are relatively minor criticisms. This book is really good.

Highlights from the book for me:

- Pt. 1, Ch. 1: The Python Data Model. This is the perfect example of how some of my pre-existing knowlegde has been grounded with stronger, more philosophical foundations. Great (re)read for pretty much any Python developer or beginner.
- Pt. III: Functions As Objects. I believe many users are too unfamiliar with functional programming ideas, and these chapters give a great introduction to how to use functions in practical and abstract ways.
- Pt. IV, Ch. 11: From Protocols to ABCs. A great chapter which covers Python's take on much of the OO philosophy. Great read to get a better grasp on how to think about your Python code.
- Pt. V: Control Flow. This entire part is very informative. I knew about generator expressions/functions, but the level of detail here to explain the exact differences between iterables and iterators, function/class approaches thereof, helped me grasp the concepts a lot more fundamentally. Furthermore there's three great chapters about concurrent programming that really gave me a great basis to build on. The difference between threads, callbacks and coroutines, and how coroutines are implemented as generator functions: wow.
- Ch. 20: Attribute Descriptors: This chapter explanis the descriptor protocol, and how properties and class methods are examples of them. Pretty abstract stuff, but recommended to have read at least.

YMVV, but these were the best chapters for me.

I thought the book was great, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who's serious about getting better at Python, and wants to cover a lot of ground.

I'm going to do the impossible. Summarize my experience in a 1000-page book in a few paragraphs.

I've been away from programming professionally in Python for one year. I've used the language for at least 20 years.

I'm about to start working with it again with a huge undertaking that will keep me busy for at least a year. I wanted to ensure I skilled up properly, and I got some inspiration and tips for implementing certain use cases and taking advantage of the most recent version of Python (3.10).

This is the first Python book I read from cover to cover. It is a delight. It's profound, it's meticulously covering feature by feature of the Python language while presenting them with simple and useful examples.

I sincerely wish I had read this book before.

Be forewarned. This is the second edition, and both editions cover both the history and reasoning behind Python features. I like this. I've collected hundreds of links to follow up in the future, should the future make this possible.

Do read this book if you're serious about learning Python and having an understanding of the philosophy directing the future of the language.

Thank you, Luciano.

Käytännönläheinen kirja, joka menee lopulta todella syvälle Pythonin hienouksiin ja erikoisuuksiin. Luin tämän ehkä liian aikaisin Python-urallani, koska kaikki konseptit (esim. asynkroninen ohjelmointi) eivät auenneet täysin. Tärkeimpiä havaintoja minulle olivat erityismetodien (dunder-metodit) tärkeys idiomaattisien luokkien kirjoittamisessa, iteraattorien ja generaattorien periaatteet, datatyyppien sielunmaailma, luokkahierarkiat ja periytyvyys, samanaikaiset prosessit sek�� import timen ja runtimen erot. Kaikkiin pitää syventyä enemmän, ja muistaa samalla KISS (keep it simple stupid) sekä EAFP (easier to ask for forgiveness than permission).

"I'm sure it will be fine"
[Narrator: It wasn't fine]
Seriously. This books is really good. However, I wasn't the target reader. That's why four stars and not five. But even with a rudimentary Python when I started, I've learned a lot, not specifically about Python, but about programming. For example, now I understand coroutines in Go. For example, now I understand classes can be objects as well.
Again. The book is really good. But I'm afraid I will have to read it again at some point in the future to fully appreciate it. Maybe I'll change the rating then.

This books covers a range of Python areas, it has quite a few good tips and not so often discussed peculiarities of some popular aspects of Python. However, in my opinion, some of more practical subjects were not given as extensive an attention as they, may be, deserve, and that volume was given to those aspects, which are not of everyday usage. For example, as far as I understand, the author believes that context managers are a great invention, but he would not give a comprehensive view of them and their usages. At the same time, such not so extensively used Python areas as metaprogramming, coroutines, asynchio take about a third of the book.

I can definitely understand wanting to claw your way deep into the heart of a language. But, I mean, any language except Python.

I like Python because I've never felt I had to get that good at it. As opposed to - as an extreme opposite example - the enormous time investment you need to make to both write good C++, and read other people's C++.

The main advantage of Python is that it is very clear and easy to read, and that you don't have to learn much to get things done. If I had to work with someone who wrote Python this way it is sometimes written in this book, or someone who used half of the knowledge in this book, I would be seriously annoyed.

Fluent Python really helps to grasp the higher level Python functionalities, to understand what's going on under the hood, and how to harness them most effectively. Requires a few years of Python experience (time is probably not a good measure, but it's definitely not for beginners).
It's not a short and easy read, but it's worth it make your way through.
The book si full of code samples, which makes it sometimes too details, but the main idea is not to lose the readers, which makes sense. Also, it's very rich in references, so if you want to follow up on a topic, it gets you started.
