Just starting to learn python and I was going through your (very well put together) tutorial - however it appears some editing may be in order as a number of earlier "programming examples" - e.g section 3.2. "First Steps Towards Programming" - once it introduces 'print' statement - the syntax is wrong for the newer version of python (as I found out from some Google searches) - in that print is now a function and the brackets are required.

I know this may seem like nit-picking but sometimes when you are learning from scratch - little things like syntax errors - when you have typed exactly what is on the screen can be very frustrating.
