Yeah, it sounds suspicious. Also, I am supposed to read advanced books when it comes to programming.
Truth is that a friend of mine wanted to revamp her programming skills after a long hiatus, and she asked me for advice.
She also more or less talked me into going through the book together, so I opted for this because it gave me a chance to see how the "Head First" stuff was, and being based on Python it could also provide a decent introduction to the language (something I could use someday) even if a seperate "Head first Python" exists.
To sum it up: as it often happens, one of the two involved parties lost interest/found something more urgent/took another road and the other one went back to more usual readings (and interests).
For what it's worth, I found the book well written and I suppose it works for the intended audience (hence the 4 stars). I am not part of it, though, so YMMV....Continua
