Depends on the audience I guess. If someone wants to learn Python and if they are already good in another programming language, this book can be a quick way to learn Python (quick start). I got the book with this intention.

It's much easier to learn from YouTube videos and coding along. Books only give you bits and pieces. For any questions use Google with stack overflow.

I mean, they're probably fine. In my experience, books like this are best in physical format, combined with digital tutorials you can find online. Python especially has a multitude of free and comprehensive resources online; you don't need an e-book, but a physical book might be more helpful for quickly finding references.

Introductory Python books written by people with community college experience on the language seems to be the order of the day on Amazon right now. Just looking at the Look Inside! preview of these books, I've spotted several glaring errors already. Incorrect syntax for the specific distro they mentioned, typos, and some very bad code.

I highly recommend caution before diving into these. There are better books online that are also free.

Is it possible to tell that this is coming up as $0.00 for me because it's actually free, and not just because I have a bunch of deferred shipping credits on my account?

I like the net ninjas videos for web development and he has a python playlist for beginners. If you're interested in data science try looking up pandas tutorials. There's a lot of good free content on YouTube, just find someone who you can understand clearly and doesn't bore you.

I've stopped buying coding books because they're a tough read and if they sit on your shelf for too long, they get outdated fast and have 0 resell value. It's much easier to read stack overflow responses especially for beginners because chances are someone has had the same problems as you already.

I liked watching bucky/thenewboston when I was learning, but they're a few years old now and he stopped making videos once he got hired by a big VC firm here in Silicon Valley. I'm sure you can find more recent video playlists from others, but the very basics haven't changed. Just start with Python 3/Anaconda.
