Is "deceptively clear" a good thing?

You forgot to mention that the author is a generous
guy (at least on occasion) and a fan of Alan Parsons.
In any case, yes, the book deserves consideration.
Myself, I'm still mulling over how it compares with
the alternatives; I think several of the leading Python
books each have a place.
