We are ecstatic to announce the release of the first edition of *Effective Computation in Physics - Field Guide to Research with Python* http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920033424.do, published by O'Reilly Media.
*You (or your students and colleagues) can even get a 50% discount if you grab it before July 17th using the code: WKPYDP http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920033424.do?code=WKPYDP*.
This book was heavily inspired by Software Carpentry. Though it draws on many examples from the physical sciences, many of the topics and chapters are broadly applicable to all of scientific computing. We hope that you'll find it useful even if your domain is biological, chemical, or mathematical in nature!
