Coding examples are too long for audio

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Better choice of code examples. Many coding examples were unnecesarily long so the point was lost in a verbal context.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The introductions to each chapter were well written. However, the code examples were often poorly chosen.

The female narrator was very effective and pleasing.

Which scene was your favorite?


Did Python Programming for Beginners inspire you to do anything?

Any additional comments?

Not sure I would recommend this book.

Good material but...

The reading of all the code samples made this a really hard book to listen to. Basically it's not an audiobook, it's a regular book read out loud in exactly detail.
