I’ve always believed that a book, even a technical book, should try to tell a cohesive story. The challenge is that as Python has grown in popularity, it has really turned into three different languages--each with their own story. There is a whimsical Python for scripting and tinkering, a quirky Python for asynchronous programming and networking, and a serious Python for enterprise applications. Sometimes these stories intersect. Sometimes not.
