If you write on page 348 that
To follow all of the examples in this book, you are going to need Python 2.7,
The examples are not guaranteed to work with Python 3.X.

then why on page 349 you write This is not an exhaustive description of Python, for that I suggest you try “The Quick Python Book” by Vern Ceder

“The Quick Python Book” by Vern Ceder is a book that is based on python 3.X .

Not sure if this make sense for me?

Re: Page 348, The examples are not guaranteed to work with Python 3.X,
The next version of this book will have that line on pg 349 removed and replaced with: a recommendation of "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist" which is a free Python book. (The contents are available oline for free.)

I would have put "Dive into Python" here but that book is no long available for free on line.
