I had took some O'Rielly courses for work and learned HTML, CSS, JS, XML and UNIX. Some upcoming projects require me to learn Python and I think given the confidence I've gained, I can go at it without a course and educate myself with one of these O'Reilly Media books!
My question is what are the main differences/benefits between these two publications:
I'm inclined to get both but I feel they are going to cover a lot of the same material.
Thanks for any help!
Thanks for your interest both Learning Python and Introducing Python. I'm not an expert on this topic, but it does seem like Learning Python would be more in depth as it is a much larger book than Introducing Python. I would suggest looking at reviews and the description of both books and coming to a conclusion on that basis.
Also you purchase both and use the discount code MBBGS to get a 3rd ebook free.

I handle the Python titles at O'Reilly--thank you for your question. Introducing Python assumes *no* programming knowledge (Python or otherwise) at all, and is more succinct. Learning Python assumes general programming knowledge and goes much deeper into specifics. I hope this helps.
