Python Programming Books, eBooks, and Video

Python is lauded for its readability, its lack of fussiness, and how easy it is to teach. It is consistently ranked in the top ten languages to know and is widely taught in universities.

Python is used in countless places outside of the classroom. People use it to write everything from websites to tools for scientific work, from simple scripts to video games—and it's a primary language in the emerging field of data science. Python may appear simple, but it's incredibly powerful. A significant number of applications at Google use Python, including YouTube.

Whether you are just starting out with Python or looking for a go-to reference, our collection of books and video training has you covered.
