Any idea what to read to improve Python skill ?

Hi, Can You put a list of books about programing in Python. I am not looking for every single book. Just the one that You read and think they might improve learning in Python.

I would say, Python Pocket Reference, depending on what python version you use; go for the 5th if you use any py version over 3.4.

I say this because the book is 8 X 4 inches in size but 200 + pages.

Carry it on your back, pop it open when you need help on basic-intermediate-quasi-advanced python.

You wont regret, it it's also cheap, look it up online first.

Try crash course python. Definitely fills in the gaps that Kenneth fails to provide in some lessons. The headfirst python book is good as well but it gets into html and breaks away from actual python halfway through

I've really enjoyed Data Science From Scratch, but obviously my goal isn't to be a Python developer; it is to perform computations, visualizations, and many many other things that fall into this specific field.

Python by Lutz. Full size, not pocket version.
