Python Essential Reference, 2nd Edition
I'm pleased to report that the 2nd edition of the Python Essential Reference (New Riders Publishing) has recently been completed and is on its way to the presses. This edition retains the concise style of the first edition, but has been extensively updated to incorporate new language features and core modules added to Python 2.0 and Python 2.1.
This edition would not be possible without the feedback I received from the first edition. Therefore, I'd like to acknowledge the following individuals for their contributions and suggestions:
Paul Dubois, David Ascher, Mats Wichmann, Tim Bell, Jan Decaluwe, Mike Coleman, Andrew Kuchling, Greg Ward, Richard Wolff, Holger Durer, Patrick Moran, Christian Norgaard Storm Pedersen, Dustin Mitchell, Benjamin Smith, Michael Drumheller, Brett Porter, Michael Dyck, Ian Thomas Cohen, Steve Burns, David Morrill, Dennis McCoy, Peter Koren, Richard Gruet, Hamish Lawson, Michael Rodgers, Eric Rowe, Phil Austin, Aaron Digulla, Jack Gilbert, Joseph Sachs, Daniel Klein, Cecil Edwards, and apologies to anyone I might have missed.
