    "I was looking to broaden my marketable talents in the job field and decided to learn basic programming. After reading a bunch of Reddit posts, I decided that Python would be the quickest language to pick up and possibly the most useful. Mark Lutz's book was what I was looking for as it was an introductory course to Python programming and allowed me to learn and also decide if this was what I wanted to do. Easy to follow and implement."

    "As a person who knows absolutely nothing about programming, this book is a godsend. Not only did the book teach me the very basics, but there were also activities that allowed me to apply my knowledge of programming. I would recommend this book to those who don't know anything about programming like me."

    "This is a great book for those starting out and know nothing about Python. It isn't too deep so a beginner can readily get accustomed to coding. It's not overly technical and I'd add it as one of the best of the Python series, simply for that reason. It's a lot of fun for the learner as well. It's simplified fun!"

    "I had heard much about this programming language and been wanting to learn it for a while now and this resource has worked great. Though I had to study a few parts more then once the material is presented in a reasonably straight forward manor and there are plenty of examples to help the reader see it action."
