I have also been wondering about a second book to get. I've already
got "Beginning Python" from Apress, which is good, but very basic.
I'm weighing "Python in a Nutshell" against "Python Essential
Reference". In one of the customer reviews on the amazon-page (linked
to above), someone claims: "The Nutshell book documents each function
of a module with an explanation of how to use it and what to watch
out for. It often provides a useful example. Beazley, on the other
hand, has mostly restated the web docs, which are free."
Any opinions on this?
(BTW: When I try to visit diveintopython.com, that someone just
mentioned in this thread, I get up a web page that has little if
anything to do with python.)
