If a person already knows Java (but nothing about Python), how would you recommend that person read your book (as opposed to a pure beginner)?

More quickly! Ha ha! Seriously, though, I think that's mostly true. For someone with Java experience, I would still recommend reading this book from front to back, though the experienced programmer should be able to absorb the information a lot more quickly, even skimming some parts. Also, someone with programming experience probably knows which parts to skip. For example, if you don't need to use a database, skip that chapter. Thanks!
