Start your review of Python Fluente: Programação Clara, Concisa e Eficaz
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 ...more

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 simp

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

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 yo

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


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 conf

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 hig ...more

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 int

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

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. ...more

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.

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.

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, an
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 JSO ...more

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. ...more

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.

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 h

[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.

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 ...more

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 some

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, i

Great book if you want to know the best practices of Python (aka writing "Pythonic Code").

This book deals with wide array of topics and does this in a very clear way.

Its a great book for anyone who already have basic knowledge of Python and would like to learn the right habits.

Recommended for those who have background in other programming languages.

The only downside of this book that it might be too hard for someone who is only starting: the book should be read early enough though, so you learn

If you think you know Python, read this book. That language is meant to surprise you no matter how long you've been working with it or how deep is your expertise. This book teaches you how to write good and efficient code in Python and explores all the hidden features of the language which are not always described in most of the Python literature out there. It also helps you to make the most of the language in as little code as possible. ...more

Excellent information throughout. A great book for advancing beyond the Python beginner. Python has some unintuitive design decisions and this book expertly explains why those choices were made and the consequences. Also included are guidelines for writing Pythonic code that conform to standards and a good look at standard libraries. I understand the Python language at a deeper level after reading this book.

it's a fine book for those who have at least some level of understanding of the Python basics as this book is about to teach the python basics! You don't have to understand every detail inside the book. Just have a grasp that is Concurrency, Meteprogarmming, decorator, threading pool... it did not explain these topics well, even made these topics very boring as hard to understand!!!. but you got a grasp of them. try to watch as many YouTube videos as possible. these really explain well!!! ...more
