31. Text Processing in Python by David Mertz
This book is ideally suited for programmers who are a little bit familiar with Python, and whose daily tasks involve a fair amount of text processing chores.
While Python is a rather simple language at heart, this book is not intended as a tutorial on Python for non-programmers. Instead this book is about two other things: getting the job done, pragmatically and efficiently; and understanding why what works works and what doesn’t work doesn’t work, theoretically and conceptually. As such, the author hopes this book can be useful both to working programmers and to students of programming at a level just past the introductory.
32. Practical Programming in Python by Jeffrey Elkner, Allen B. Downey, Chris Meyers, Brendan McCane, Iain Hewson, Nick Meek
This course book is a modified version of the online textbook: “How to think like a computer scientist:learning with Python, 2nd Edition”, by Jeffrey Elkner, Allen B. Downey, and Chris Meyers.
