Looking for a Python / Pi book

Tue Jul 28, 2015 7:59 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking for a very good Python/Pi book

So far, I've read on Amazon this one looks the best >> Learning Python with Raspberry Pi by Alex Bradbury and Ben Everard.
Any recommendations for this one, or another?
Is it also wise to just buy a book on Python w/o it actually being geared towards the Pi in the text?

Thanks

First I'd do teach your kids to code by bryson Payne. Then python for kids by Jason r Briggs which is similar then automate the boring stuff with python by al sweigart then codecademy. Make sure you take lots of notes.

Interested in this answer as well, I have "Learn Python the Hard Way" by Zed A. Shaw that I am currently working through, but would also like a Pi specific book to reference

There are alot of basics I recommend you guys learn first which is why I suggested the kiddie books which are well written. For a raspberry pi specific book I say get Raspberry Pi Cookbook for Python Programmers by Tim cox. You probably can't find a better python/pi book. Also read the magpi because it's entirely pi specific and there are book reviews which is where I found the black/grey hat books for python.

I recommend "Dive into Python" by Mark Pilgrim. You can buy a printed copy, or you can download it for free (legitimately).
