It is just too hard to say what is the best book I've ever read. Or
even best book on subject of IT or Python. That's why I didn' dare to
suggest that GEB was the best book.

Poor choise of words. I was just trying to say that it's not as
practical as other books suggested here like Python Cookbook or
Mythical Man-Month.
