   We are pleased to announce the release of a new Python book.
      Object-Oriented Programming in Python
      by Michael H. Goldwasser and David Letscher
      Prentice Hall, 2008   (available as of 10/29/2007)

   The book differs greatly from existing introductory Python books as
   it warmly embraces the object-oriented nature of Python from the
   onset.  It is also extremely comprehensive with solid fundamentals
   as well as several "advanced" topics that can be covered as

   This book is based on materials developed after switching our
   curriculum to the use of Python for an object-oriented CS1 course.
   Since the primary market is an introductory course, we do not
   assume any previous programming experience for our readers.  This
   should make it a very good match for those who wish to self-study.
   The book includes 93 end-of-chapter "practice" problems with full
   solutions in an appendix, as well as an additional 300
   end-of-chapter exercises.  There is also an appendix that helps
   readers who have finished the book transition their skills to
   additional language, showing side-by-side examples of code in
   Python, Java and C++.
