    "I needed to learn Python for work. This book, "Learn Python the Hard Way - Third Edition" was recommended to me by a co-worker. I think it is really a difficult book for beginners like me. It does not really explain the concepts but tells you to look things up online. It does have many programming examples though that are useful. There is also a newer edition out there so this one is outdated. "

    "This book is quite stale for learning Python. Python is an exciting language to learn but this book just sticks to loops, variable and all the basics of programming. It does not bring the real use cases to life. "

    "I think "Learning to Program Using Python" is a good book for a person beginning to program to understand the concepts. But if you have programmed before and wanting to learn Python, this is not what you are looking for."
