This is an AWESOME book that has completely transformed the way I code in Python. That might sound like the opening to a parody review, but I'm being sincere. One of the best things about Python is that it has a low barrier to entry and it's easy to get started programming.

I don't think I'm the intended audience for this book. I'm a hobbyist who's done some simple programming in the past and is new to Python. I've gotten through a couple of beginner books that start with 'Hello world!', and picked this up because I was excitedly running around Python tutorials and Stack Overflow like Jack Skellington, going "Ooh, what's this? What's this?" I was looking for a book that would answer what's that.

This seems more targeted towards professional, or at least experienced,

Really enjoy the content of this book. Despite not really deep, the contents show some critical concepts that you'll use often day-to-day basis. This book introduce various tools and best practices to solve specific problems (e.g: Unit testing, Profiling, Multithread vs Multiprocess, Documentation).

Initially, I borrowed this book from the library, but ended up purchasing it myself for the wealth of information on a variety of topics in Python. I decided to read it cover to cover but a lot of the topics weren't immediately applicable to problems I've encountered, so it was slow-going in some spots. Overall, it was well worth the read and I've already returned to some sections for reference while coding. I can see myself using this book for a long time.

A lot of useful ideas, but it feels kinda rushed. Sitll worth it, though.
