Yes. I may be wrong, but Prima_Tech seem to publish particularly useless
ugly books.
Their main contribution seems to be splatter a cheesy rendering of that damn
bathtubtoypenguin everywhere, including giant as a page background = yikes!
They seem to think this will sell books.. what a tragedy-travesty :-(

The general series page design and layout is confusing, and poorly
conceived - a Prime example of 'fluff' or 'value-subtracted' publishing.

Content and editorial also appear to be inexperienced and rushed to market.
I feel sorry for any auhtor sucked into a contract with them and it is a
shaem there is even a Python title in that series at all.

caveat emptor [buyer beware]
