Lean Python is published by Apress in December 2016. This book has 87 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1484223840.
Learn only the essential aspects of Python without cluttering up your mind with features you may never use. This compact book is not a “best way to write code” type of book; rather, the author goes over his most-used functions, which are all you need to know as a beginner and some way beyond.
Lean Python takes 58 Python methods and functions and whittles them down to 15: as author Paul Gerrard says, “I haven’t found a need for the rest.”
- Discover lean Python and how to learn just enough to build useful tools
- Use Python objects, program structure, I/O, modules and more
