Hello Russel,

Thanks for your recommendation and reply.

I've bought the book named Python 核 心 编 程 (第二版) on www.dangdang.com. I guess I can get the book today. 

To Wesley, I did not realize you are the author of Python 核 心 编 程 (第二版) until I read the book's note online carefully and found your name. It's very exciting! You know this is the first time in my life that the book's author e-mail me. After I get it I shall start to read in my weekend and if there is any questions I shall write e-mail to you. Thanks again!

And to Brian vdB, I have my job need to do on windows platforms, and I installed python on a linux virtual machine hosted on my PC, so I can't copy/paste the code here. But it is a very good point that install the python interepter on Windows platform and copy/paste the code in the command line to run it directly, this will avoid some type error. Thanks for your suggestion!.

The book Sarah Mount, James Shuttleworth and I wrote "Python for Rookies" is a book aimed to teach people who are not already programmers programming using Python.  Not been translated to Chinese yet as far as I know.  The book is Python 2.4/2.5, we are currently trying to work with the publisher to get out a new edition that can be Python 2.7/3.2.
