Portable, powerful, and a breeze to use, Python is the popular open source object-oriented programming language used for both standalone programs and scripting applications. It is now being used by an increasing number of major organizations, including NASA and Google.Updated for Python 2.4, The Python Cookbook, 2nd Edition offers a wealth of useful code for all Python programmers, not just advanced practitioners. Like its predecessor, the new edition provides solutions to problems that Python programmers face everyday.It now includes over 200 recipes that range from simple tasks, such as working with dictionaries and list comprehensions, to complex tasks, such as monitoring a network and building a templating system. This revised version also includes new chapters on topics such as time, money, and metaprogramming.Here's a list of additional topics covered: Manipulating text Searching and sorting Working with files and the filesystem Object-oriented programming Dealing with threads and processes System administration Interacting with databases Creating user interfaces Network and web programming Processing XML Distributed programming Debugging and testing Another advantage of The Python Cookbook, 2nd Edition is its trio of authors--three well-known Python programming experts, who are highly visible on email lists and in newsgroups, and speak often at Python conferences.With scores of practical examples and pertinent background information, The Python Cookbook, 2nd Edition is the one source you need if you're looking to build efficient, flexible, scalable, and well-integrated systems.… (more)

I'm glad to be done with this for now, as I am with most books intended for reference use that I try reading cover to cover. Nevertheless it's a great resource, and I think the recipes here are a bit higher quality than some of the other O'Reilly Cookbook titles. Good cross-referencing and encouragement to refer to material in related chapters. An essential reference if you are learning Python, and a source for some great ideas. ( )

Not recommendable for introductory reading, but quite a nice bedside table book for the experienced Python programmer. The entire book is made up of short to medium-length examples constructed by experienced Python programmers solving small real-world programming tasks together with a concise description. Great to learn the hidden intricacies of the programming language. ( )

Even though it's intended for experienced developers, it helped me understand some of the tricky issues that I was running into just starting out. ( )

Probably just not the book I needed at the time, but disappointing for me - make sure that the "recipes" in here actually address problems somewhat related to the ones you're dealing with. ( )

I love the Cookbook series. Lots of clever tricks and details about the language you didn't know before. Plus I have to recommend this because recipe 7.3 "Using Compression with Pickling" is the first thing I've ever had published in a book. ( )
