Beginner’s book

I’m often asked which of the many books are good for beginners to use to learn Python. Of them all, the one that I find the best to use is called Python Crash Course.

The reason I like this book is that it takes a real world, solutions-driven approach to learning Python, and gives a good grounding in the right development practices.

Following that, I usually recommend the Pytest book.

Take a look at the reviews, but before doing that, think about what you like in a book and how you like to learn. Understand when learning any programming language it’s not so much about reading as it is about applying what you learn. You’ll find if you sit at your desk with the book and your preferred editor open together, and practice what you are reading you will learn faster.
