Here's a datapoint: I had a bit of experience in C, having written a few
small 100-line or so programs. I never done anything even remotely serious,
though. I bought "programming python" and found that it went over my head,
but now that I know more about python, I began re-reading it and found
it far more useful. So, if you're about as experienced as I was, try an
easier book for starters.
