I was looking for a pocket reference for Python, so I got this book. I have just started to learn Python, and am naturally working with the latest version (3.6). This book spends much (perhaps up to half) of its space (and my time) describing older versions of Python and how those features are different now. This, to me, is like buying a new automobile, and in the owner's manual it describes how the 1932 Ford Coupe works, and how this car is different.
I do not want to learn Python 1, 2, 2.4, 2.7, 2.anything. This book is inappropriately titled. If you are making a reference, have it refer to what people are learning and using.

This is a good reference book for people who already had some knowledge about Python. It has a list of common phrases and commands. Of course everything in the book can be looked up on the internet too.

You can't go wrong with these O'Reilley pocket references. I don't even buy big fat computer books anymore. If you need a piece of information, you can look in here. It's even faster than Google and there are enough examples to get you through. This book will allow you to jump into someone else's code amd make progress adding features or fixing bugs.

Excellent pocket reference for a beginner. I refer to this guide almost daily while I work on Python programming assignments for school.
