@itsbennett Same :( but I understand Zed needs to be paid for his work. Still a great resource for all who looking for hands on experience with Python. Different from most programming books which shove theory down your throat and bore you to death.

-maybe= the book is good, but unfortunately he can be an arrogant, nasty, SOB. Soon after pythin 3 came came out, his Python 2.x book was still out and asked if he had plans to write a version 3 book. Harmless enough question, His reply was nasty, rude, and insulting. Completely uncalled for and a big turnoff.

@naresh-saini Hey, for that I believe you have to use frameworks like Django and Flask, these will have their own syntax and other details but it's mainly built from python.

I have used this book as my first foray into computer programming. It is an amazing resource. When you combine the books with his videos, you will learn an insane amount. It's not a shame that is costs some money. Pay for it. Its great.
