Book cover of Python in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference by Alex Martelli

Official description

This Nutshell guide provides a one-stop shop for Python programmers who need help remembering or deciphering the syntax of this open source language and its many powerful but scantily documented modules. The third edition of this comprehensive reference guide makes it easy for you to look up the most frequently needed information—not just about the Python language itself, but also the most frequently used parts of the standard library and the most important third-party extensions. It's been revised and expanded to cover both versions 2.7 and 3.5, and highlights of version 3.6.

Python is an easy scripting language with a huge library that is enormously rich. Our Nutshell format fits Python perfectly—it's an excellent way to present the highlights of all the modules and functions, which cover well over 90% of a programmer's practical needs.
