Mark Lutz's Book Support Site
Welcome. At this site, you'll find information about Python books I've written, Python training services, Python resources on the net, and a bit about my background. Click on one of the links below to go to the topic you're interested in. I usually update the date at the bottom of this page when I make changes.
The book lists below are ordered by publication date; paper and ebook dates may differ slightly. Python version numbers covered are in square brackets, and rounded page counts include front- and back-matter content, which can add as much as 70 pages. All the books here were published by O'Reilly Media (the publisher formerly known as O'Reilly & Associates).
FAQ: about future editions
There are currently no plans for new editions of any of the books listed below. This includes Programming Python, whose latest edition is fully relevant today, and presents examples which run fine on the most recent Python 3.X—both 3.3 and 3.4—with only very minor changes. While it may be premature to label any of the current editions as final, I hope they will continue to serve Python 2.X and 3.X users for many years to come.
For more details, see the reader FAQ on this topic. For future Python changes, watch the books' update pages on this site, as well as Python's own What's New? documents. And for more on Python's status in general, see both the introduction and conclusion to Learning Python, 5th Edition (Chapters 1 and 41).
