Do you feel bad because of the Python docs?

I think learning a language from the documentation is an unreasonable expectation and burden for the authors.

Buy a book, take a class, they are designed to provide you with a path from start to finish in a sensible manner, the documentation in my opinion is supposed to be a reference and a refresher with an assumed level of basic fundamentals.

I'm currently taking a class in ARM assembly, the notion that I should expect to plop the thousand+ page reference manual on my desk and just "get to it" is absurd.
