After the disgraceful way that Zed Shaw wrote about Python 3 
https://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/nopython3.html I wouldn't touch 
his stuff with a 100 foot long disinfected barge pole.  Just a few 
months after this article he came out with the Python 3 book you 
reference above, presumably because he was losing cash.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
