NEW ARRIVAL: A Concise Introduction to Programming in Python 2nd Edition Mark J. Johnson

"I received a free copy of the book in exchange for writing a review"


What can I say, I love to code! So today I got an awesome book that just arrived in my mailbox. Couldn't wait to share this newly released book called A Concise Introduction to Programming in Python, 2nd Edition by Mark J. Johnson. Now, this is the second edition, so it's definitely up-to-date and provides a bit more added information that the first did not. Plus, what really made me curious to read this book and learn Python is because I really enjoyed learning JavaScript and when trying an app that was done in Python, it made me curious to try it out. Also, cause the two coding programs are quite similar, JavaScript and Python. On that note, I must say after trying so many coding programs, I have noticed each is similar to one another in some way or work together.

So why this book? Well, I figured that this book should really be useful at guiding me to understand it so much better. Since it is a small book, not huge but perfect for a quick resource to answer and train me in learning Python. Oh yes, by the way, don't let the size fool you. It is a small book, not a gigantic 600-page textbook, but instead a small and simple introduction to Python. It is small but packs in a lot of examples, exercises, and guidance that is must need for a beginner. Plus, plenty of details that don't cause for confusing when starting out.

Shortly, I'll be putting my head into this book, but figure I let you get a quick view of the new coding book that just arrived. I am hoping that this will give me the best results and make learning and using Python a-piece-of-cake! Finally, if coding is something that may interest you or you want to teach coding to your class, well these books found on CRC Press are packed with plenty of new ones coming out each month, in all types of STEM-related topics. They have a great range of books and I can say that each is very well made. I haven't yet found a book that wasn't useful and hasn't given me what I needed to learn a new coding program or understand one better.
