Programming Python 2nd ed is _not_ much good for a complete beginner at 
Python - I speak from experience (and I'm not new to programming). 

The gentle intro from the 1st edition (which was good for beginners from 
the reviews I've read) has been taken out, and expanded into Learning 
Python also by O'Reilly.

Once one has read Learning Python, then Programming Python 2nd ed makes a 
lot more sense.

company, don't sue us etc. etc.
