Four of my five top non-fiction books which I read this year are Python programming titles. This is unsurprising as I’ve spend a considerable amount of time teaching myself Python via books and MOOCs.

The titles below will take you from absolute beginner to having a firm grasp of how to build interactive, useful, modern applications of this versatile programming language.

The fifth title is a non-programming, which I reviewed back in June. While it is not about programming, it does touch on Open Data, data journalism and the need for new skills among citizens and journalists alike.
