"This is a practical book aimed at busy developers. Every chapter takes a real piece of code and turns it inside out until you can't help but understand it. If there is background information you need to know, you'll learn it along the way. But you won't find long-winded treatises on the aesthetics of API design or the history of computer science. I don't have time for that, and neither do you."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

None of this "hello world" tripe, you start by reading an ODBC client. If you've already picked up three or four programming languages, this is where you should head next. Particularly useful in new-hire firehose mode: "We'll count your perl experience as useful, but you've got to be willing to port yourself to python. Still interested? Start here." (I happen to think python is the *last* language you'll need for a while - but you don't have to agree with that to find this book very effective.) ( )
