(pavel-dot-simo-at-gmail-dot-com)I recently finished reading Byte of Python, and I thought I really ought to thank  you. I was very sad to reach the final pages as I now have to go back to dull,tedious oreilly or etc. manuals for learning about python. Anyway, I reallyappreciate your book -
Samuel Young
(sy-one-three-seven-at-gmail-dot-com)Dear Swaroop, I am taking a class from an instructor that has no interest inteaching. We are using Learning Python, second edition, by O'Reilly. It is not atext for beginner without any programming knowledge, and an instructor thatshould be working in another field. Thank you very much for your book, without itI would be cluless about Python and programming. Thanks a million, you are ableto 'break the message down' to a level that beginners can understand and noteveryone can. -

(jduarte1-at-cfl-dot-rr-dot-com)I love your book! It is the greatest Python tutorial ever, and a very usefulreference. Brilliant, a true masterpiece! Keep up the good work! -
Python3I'm just e-mailing you to thank you for writing Byte of Python online. I had beenattempting Python for a few months prior to stumbling across your book, andalthough I made limited success with pyGame, I never completed a program.Thanks to your simplification of the categories, Python actually seems a reachablegoal. It seems like I have finally learned the foundations and I can continue intomy real goal, game development. ... Once again, thanks VERY much for placingsuch a structured and helpful guide to basic programming on the web. It shovedme into and out of OOP with an understanding where two text books had failed.

(m-underscore-gallivan12-at-hotmail-dot-com)I would like to thank you for your book 'A byte of python' which i myself find thebest way to learn python. I am a 15 year old i live in egypt my name is Ahmed.Python was my second programming language i learn visual basic 6 at school butdidn't enjoy it, however i really enjoyed learning python. I made the addressbook program and i was sucessful. i will try to start make more programs and readpython programs (if you could tell me source that would be helpful). I will alsostart on learning java and if you can tell me where to find a tutorial as good as yours for java that would help me a lot. Thanx.

(sedo-underscore-91-at-hotmail-dot-com) A wonderful resource for beginners wanting to learn more about Python is the110-page PDF tutorial A Byte of Python by Swaroop C H. It is well-written, easy tofollow, and may be the best introduction to Python programming available.
