    What book(s) are good to learn Python 3?
    Many of the internet example programs are Python 2 and will not work on Python 3.
    Good example code would be nice.
    thanks

    I got this book and found it to be a pretty good read. I helped fund it on kickstarter and you can now get it on amazon.
    He just wrote it this year and is making regular updates and putting the code on line.

    This guy has been doing python for ...like... forever. He discusses the differences between 2 and 3 in there somewhere.

    Thanks Rich D.,
    I will probably get the e-book version.

    I found 'Head First Python' in PDF and paper. It has a very different learning method. It takes 5 pages to present one idea. (like and dislike)
    I found 'Python for Kids' in PDF and paper. Has third grade jokes. Also for beginners.

    I will get some more advanced books and keep trying the examples and then changing the code.
