I think the original poster meant that _Learning Python_ is not a good
book if you're completely new to programming. If you already have
some programming experience _Learning Python_ is likely to be fine, but
for someone who is not into these things already _Learning Python_ can
get confusing. This was the case with my friend, for instance.

_Learning Python_ isn't designed for such newbies though, it's
for people who have at least some experience with programming.
