[Tutor] Textbook Recommendation
Sun, 11 Feb 2001 12:22:05 -0600
Each of the two books you mention seem fine. You should also consider
Alan Gauld's *Learning to Program Using Python*. I've been through the
material on his site, which I found to be of high quality, and my
understanding is that the book is excellent. If I purchase another
introductory Python book, it's the one I figure I'll spend my money on,
especially if the intended purpose is to use the material to teach
programming to young people.
