I'm in the middle of a full walkthrough of the examples in the book and
have sent in updates for the first 16 chapters and the appendix for the

follow this with a full comparison between the finished book and the original

Again, I apologize for these.

Hi there,

Was the message below also "retyped in by hand due to font conversion
problems"?. It seems to me that line 7 belongs between lines 3 and 4 smilie

More seriously, I think that the book is very good (the typo catastrophe
notwithstanding), well organized, full of programming common sense and
definitively useful. Specially in comparison with rambling 'Programming
Python'.

Cheers,
