With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters are available, and the final ebook bundle is released.

This Nutshell guide provides a one-stop shop for Python programmers need help remembering or deciphering the syntax of this open source language and its many powerful but scantily documented modules. The third edition of this comprehensive reference guide makes it easy for you to look up the most frequently needed information—not just about the Python language itself, but also the most frequently used parts of the standard library and the most important third-party extensions.

      Comments about oreilly Python in a Nutshell:

      I bought this book in december 2015, looking for a good reference e-book on Python.

      Big deception, this book is in raw and unedited phase forever. There are ***no hyperlinks and no page number*** ?!? Come on O'Reilly, that's a ***e-book*, how come?

      Unacceptable, big deception, do not buy!

      Comments about oreilly Python in a Nutshell:

      Unlike the many other excellent titles from O'Reilly this one struggles to provide useful content. My advice is to keep looking, many better titles in the same catalog.

        Comments about oreilly Python in a Nutshell:

        I really enjoyed the older editions, which are now sadly out of date. Python has come a long way since 2.4, but most of the basics haven't and the earlier editions of this book were fantastic at teaching them.

        The author is also active on Stack Overflow, and his answers are always the correct answers. He really does know his stuff.
