Thanks for your info about *Practial Python*. I checked its sample chapter.
Yes, it seems to deal with a bunch of no-so-obvious syntax details of
Python explicitly. It also seems to be very up to date: it even mentions
Python 2.3. I look forward to checking how OOP is explained in this book.
The only thing I would complain about it is that I probably can't buy it
used (published in August 2002), can I?
