Does anyone have a recommendation for a (text) book to use for teaching
Python to students who already know Java? I'll be teaching a college class
in spring to students who have had at least 2 quarters of Java. So, they
should be hip to the basics of programming - e.g., conditionals, iteration,
methods, classes, etc. I'd like to focus on "more interesting" bits of
Python that are difficult or impossible in straight Java - e.g.,
introspection, duck-typing, possibly metaclasses.
