How to Think like a Computer Scientist

A beautiful little ebook for folks who love python programming. A recommended tool if you are new to python and would like to start learning the basics.

The book has all the topics neatly covered so that can be understood by a new or seasoned programmer. When I teach programming, I prefer showing a few examples of how to write a python script and then ask the person to try the rest using some reading material.

This book is the ideal teaching guide to help a python newbie become productive quickly.
If you love any other language - Java or C++ or Action Script, try this !!

Python rocks ....
