Python Distilled (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 04 October 2021

In this book, David Beazley sets out to answer questions such as how programmers who are new to Python can work out where to begin, and how  experienced Python developers can know they're coding in a manner that is clear and effective. Beazley also looks at how to make the jump from learning about individual features to thinking in Python at a deeper level.

<ASIN:‎ 0134173279>

Focusing on Python 3.6 and higher, this concise handbook focuses on the essential core of the language, with updated code examples to illuminate how Python works and how to structure programs that can be more easily explained, tested, and debugged. Throughout, Beazley reflects all he's learned teaching Python to scientists, engineers, and developers, and pushing the envelope of what makes Python tick.
