Think Python is an introduction to Python programming for students with no programming experience. It starts with the most basic concepts of programming, and is carefully designed to define all terms when they are first used and to develop each new concept in a logical progression. Larger pieces, like recursion and object-oriented programming are divided into a sequence of smaller steps and introduced over the course of several chapters.
This is the first edition of Think Python, which uses Python 2.
If you are using Python 3, you might want to use The Second Edition.About the Authors
