Excellent all in one book reference to Python


I keep this book on my in reach book shelf. An excellent concise one book reference to the Python language. That alone would be worth the price of the book but the inclusion of appendices documenting the standard library and extending and embedding Python make it a bargain.

Thorough and Easy to Use


He gives you all of his examples with the CD, and lists everything step by step. If you currently know C and want to learn windows programming, this book is a MUST for you. He teaches you everything that you need to know to program in Windows. Examples were extremely helpful. Warning, if you want a book to just "gloss" over and teach you, then this isn't it, and you probably won't find one for Windows programming. If you want to really learn step by step, then you will love this book.

Buy This Book Immediatly


Hi, I'm 15 years old and have recently decided to take up 3d animation as a hobby. After picking Lightwave as my 3d app, I was faced with the task of learning how to operate this beast of a program. I messed around with the program for a while, but all I could make was a box... I looked around the internet for while, but I couldnt find any good tutorials. Then I found INSIDE LIGHTWAVE 8..... WOW. In just a couple hours I was up and running and had already rendered my first animation. I could not believe how fast I had progressed. Now I am totally glued to this book, as it does not cease to capture my attention (this is coming from a teenager with a very short attention span).

If you are a begginer, this book will accelerate your learning to unbelievable speeds. If you already have experience, but want to know more about anything that has to do with lightwave, this book will teach you about it.

This is NOT your usual dry, boring software book that you are sick after the first 2 pages. Dan Ablan has an awesome writing style that makes you feel as if one of your friends are standing next to you, showing you how to use the program at your own pace, and on your own terms.

If you have Lightwave, or even if you are just thinking about getting it, THIS BOOK IS A MUST HAVE!!!
