Based on the most recent comment (May 2010) I would probably
stick with online tutorials.

When I first bought this in 2005 it was very helpful, especially the examples using SAX.

However Frank Lundh has now written the Element Tree module which is much easier to use to parse and write XML in Python.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend """

Here are some tutorials for Python and XML. Your mileage
will vary greatly depending on what you are trying to achieve.
In general, I mostly just Google what I need to know as it tends
to have more help / be updated more often than books.


I hope that helps you get started. Feel free to come
back when you have some code and need further help.
