New ESDS Book: Effective Python

Brett Slatkin's Effective Python is the latest book with a full-color interior to join my Effective Software Development Series, and I'm very pleased about it.The title of the first chapter--Pythonic Thinking--establishes the approach of the book, and Brett's clear writing style drives it home.

But why take my word for it? The book's web site currently has the following sample Items available for your reading and learning pleasure:

Item 40: Consider Coroutines to Run Many Functions Concurrently
Item 23: Accept Functions for Simple Interfaces Instead of Classes
Item 34: Register Class Existence with Metaclasses
Item 53: Use Virtual Environments for Isolated and Reproducible Dependencies
Item 17: Be Defensive When Iterating Over Arguments

I hope you enjoy Effective Python.
