For someone self taught, who has a beginner understanding of Python (control structures, data types, classes, functions, loops, etc) this is undoubtedly the easiest way to introduce them to Algorithms and Abstract Data structures. This really takes a beginner to an intermediate level in small easily digestible chunks.
My question to you now, HN: are there any books on the market that can guide a beginner/itermediate (who knows Python and perhaps a framework like Django) to better understand the ins and outs of programming for the web? I am not talking about getting an app up and running, I am talking about understanding the flow of data, maybe things like WSGI, security, APIs, etc. Something that can really take an intermediate to an "Expert" level.
That said: if you print individual pages with Chrome's Print to PDF feature, I think you'll be pleased with the result. The formatting tends to be very good (without extraneous markup and such, except for the interactive stuff - which was never going to go well.
I'm sure there are ways to script that printing - if not, then there aren't so many chapters that it would get excessive, I imagine. Personally, none of my students have ever requested an offline version of the book, but that might just as easily be because they never considered the utility of such a thing.
IMO this is one of those books where it helps to talk about the material out loud/screenshare. The material can sometimes be dense.
But it is returning an error at the moment!
