I would beg to differ.  I used it from the start of my Python learning 
curve and was greatly helped by it.  For me it gave explanations at just 
the right level with paths to more detail if you wanted.  I found it 
helpful from the beginning.  I would recommended others to at least look 
at it.  You might be helped right away and it's a good addition to any 
Python programmer's library.
