Hi Allen,
Does your book discuss how Python differs from other dynamic languages? Or what special features it has.
Thanks

Hi Luke,

No. My book is aimed at new programmers, so I don't do any comparison to other languages. Chapter 1 has a brief discussion of what a programming language is, but it is meant to be the minimal information a beginner needs to get started.
