 Chuck Allison says:

    After three years of study, I have concluded that Python is about
as simple as a full-powered object-oriented language can get. My inner
programmer just loves it. In a recent interview Scott Meyers was asked
which language he thought would be ideal for introducing programming to
novices. He replied:

    "... a first language should foster a feeling of power and
accomplishment out of the box - it should get people excited about
the limitless things that can be accomplished in software. Among other
things, such a language would offer an extensive and powerful
library..." [1]

I know of no language to which these words apply more than Python.
