I picked up O'Reilly's Python Cookbook on the weekend. It is targetted
towards people who know Python already. I wasn't sure I would get much
out of it, but I thought my bookshelf looked bad without a single
Python book. I've found many interesting tidbits of information in the
Python Cookbook which I've never picked up anywhere else, especially
with regard to new features in Python 2.2.
I also recommend reading documents on Python.org such as the 'What's
New in Python 2.2' (http://python.org/doc/2.2.1/whatsnew/), and various
PEPs (http://python.org/peps), as they will occasionally reveal secrets
which don't seem to be part of the main documentation package.
Random words of the day:
For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures;
and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love.
