[SciPy-User] New book: Python Programming and Visualization for Scientists
A new book has just been published that may be of interest to some members of this list, especially those relatively new to Python: Python Programming and Visualization for Scientists, by Alex DeCaria. Alex has been a regular instructor of short courses in Python at meetings of the American Meteorological Society.
This book is designed to be a concise, well-organized tutorial and reference that encompasses both the Python language itself and the most commonly used elements of selected modules, including matplotlib, numpy, time, and others.
Additional information can be found on the attached flyer and at the book's website. Note that the website currently offers only the spiral-bound version for sale; a conventional 7x10 softcover version will soon be available through other outlets.
Sundog Publishing is a very small independent publisher that relies entirely on reviews and word-of-mouth as its primary marketing tools. If you get a copy of Alex's book and think it is useful, either for yourself or for new users of Python, I hope you will help spread the word, including perhaps forwarding the attached flyer and/or above link.
