How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python

How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python is an introduction to programming using Python. The book provides a good overview of Python syntax and basic functions, while also examining more complicated and potentially confusing concepts (e.g., abstract data types). Python-specific glossaries are provided at the end of each chapter, and the ideas build from simple to complex. We think this book is a testament to the benefits and future possibilities of this kind of collaboration, the framework for which has been put in place by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation.
