    I have been a Python programmer for a number of years but not very active recently. This book was a great refresher plus I found it quite useful for features/functions within Python that I didn't know existed. While focused on the RPi, it was quite useful as a general language refresher as well. Well worth the price if you are getting started or brushing up.
