I wasn't smart enough to learn a computer language like Python—until I got smart about how to learn it. I was smart enough to earn an honors degree in philosophy from Harvard, but an aptitude test told me to avoid computer programming. I'm sure it was right. But then I designed a learning system for myself that quadrupled my aptitude for learning computer languages.

I was smart enough to earn an honors degree in philosophy from Harvard, but an aptitude test told me to avoid computer programming. I'm sure it was right. But then I designed a learning system for myself that quadrupled my aptitude for learning computer languages. It worked so well for me that I've used it to teach coding to grandmothers, cab drivers, musicians, and 50,000 other newbies. "Mark Myers' method of getting what can be...difficult information into a format that makes it exponentially easier to consume, truly understand, and synthesize into real-world application is beyond anything I've encountered before." —Amazon reviewer Jason A. Ruby reviewing my first book, A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript Quadruple your learning ability. Washington University research shows that a key teaching method I use—interactive recall practice—improves learning performance 400 percent. "I don't feel lost and I don't feel that I am forgetting things as I go along." —Amazon reviewer Leonie M. reviewing my second book, A Smarter Way to Learn HTML and CSS Understanding is easy. Remembering is hard. Computer languages are not inherently hard to understand, even for non-techies. Remembering is the problem. If you remember all of Chapter 1 through Chapter 10, you'll understand Chapter 11. But you don't remember. Though you read and read, most of it doesn't stick. You don't have a solid foundation to build on. Halfway through the book, it all collapses. That's when most people give up."I've signed up to a few sites like Udemy, Codecademy, FreeCodeCamp, Lynda, YouTube videos, even searched on Coursera but nothing seemed to work for me. This book takes only 10 minutes each chapter and after that, you can exercise what you've just learned right away!" —Amazon reviewer Constanza Morales reviewing my first book, A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript Interactive exercises make it stick. Research shows that you will remember everything if you're repeatedly asked to recall it. That's the beauty of flash cards. But technology offers an even better way to make information stick. With my book you get almost a thousand interactive exercises—they're free online—that embed the whole book in your memory. Algorithms check your work to make sure you know what you think you know. When you stumble, you do the exercise again. You keep trying until you know the chapter cold. "Not only do the exercises make learning fun, they reinforce the material right away so it sinks in deeper." —Amazon reviewer Timothy B. Miller reviewing my second book, A Smarter Way to Learn HTML and CSS You won't get bored or sleepy. The exercises keep you engaged, give you extra practice where you're shaky, and prepare you for each next step. Every lesson is built on top of a solid foundation that you and I have carefully constructed. Each individual step is small. But all the little steps add up to real knowledge—knowledge that you retain. I finally feel like I KNOW it and won't need to look up the syntax each time..." —Amazon reviewer J. Caritas reviewing my third book, A Smarter Way to Learn jQuery Really, it ain't that hard.

    What a great guide to learning. This handy book makes learning python super easy with very digestible chapters and great exercises that build on each other and establish a great base for coding knowledge. Really pleased with this book, feel very confident about going on to work on projects with this solid foundation

    Great book for beginners Small, way to digest chapters. Online quizzes after each chapter reinforce what you have learned (definitely do those). Good book for beginners in Python. One omission is dealing with databases.

Don't except to be able to create something in Python after that book, except print something basic on the screen. Excerise are dull and boring and repetitive, and what's even worse you need make a break after 1-2 chapters with exercies becasue they will burn all your cognitive abilites. It's better to start making projects and by doing/building something you will have to learn commends on the way, rather then memorize theory which you won't even know how to apply in real world projects.

    I have tried going through this book several times, but stopped but never could, because I felt it was getting boring. Due to Covid-19 crisis I have much more time now to become more educated in technology sector, and so I decided to make another attempt to complete the book. The beauty of this work is that it is very much hands-on, and follows the same principles an experienced foreign language learner would follow, which is repeat the material, until it becomes second nature.

In that sense the author did a great job of drilling into a motivated student a feel for computer language syntax, and I feel that I have a good grasp of the basics by now. This approach might not work for people who lack patience, but then programming is probably not suitable for that kind of person altogether. If I were to start over, I would go through this book on the first attempt.

    Book Title Says It All Simply put, the book is a smarter way to learn Python, learn it faster and remember it longer. I liked having each chapter short and focused on one small bit of code. Writing code at the end of each chapter makes sure you understand the chapter and helps you remember what was learned. Highly recommend.

    Solid intro Quick and easy to understand intro, missing allot of the why something works, but that doesn’t remove any real value. I would recommend this as a decent beginner book and/or solid review. I found the authors depiction of classes to be useful for to reinforce my previous learning gaps.

    The author teaches Python in the most basic way that I have ever seen that even a noob with no programming background can understand the syntax and pick it up easily. I used this book as a textbook along with the PIAIC's AI course which teaches Python.

    Good book I enjoyed working through the book. I know some more about python but I will probably forget it because I am old.

    Straight forward A straight forward break down of the basics of python. Well written and concise. Definitely a grest way to start in programming.

    This is a wonderful book. Though I've learnt python before, but the small chapters and segmented topics of this books help a lot to learn new things, in small chunks. This is a wonderful book.

    An excellent start for a totally-new coder. The book consists of 1 - 3 page chapters presenting a bite-sized topic, and coordinated on-line short exercises with immediate answers.

    There are some grammatical mistakes so I lowered my score to 4 stars otherwise this is a must have book for Python beginner programmers

    Good book. Some online content broken. Good as a basic intro to the different commands and syntax. Some of the online exercises were glitchy. I liked it.

    😃 8/10 good instructions. Fun almost snarky and simplified to a tedious degree at times. Worth the read if you need a good overview of the common structures and uses.

    Extraordinary book for learning Python. Simple chapters tied into interactive practice quizes after every chapter make it excellent for learning.

    Excellent introduction to Python Excellent book to introduce the reader to Python! The book employed lessons, each which built upon the prior lessons, using repetition as a method of making the reader learn the fundamentals of Python.

    This is a great place to start learning the fundamental syntax of Python. Wish the concepts would come togheter after each large part of the book (e.g. a "functions project" that includes previous chapter knowledge. A final project that includes all the syntax/chapters would be a great addition as well. Overall great place to start your journey with Python.
