There are so few books on wxPython--a great GUI package for the Python language which helps you build applications that can work as-well-as-native on multiple platforms--that I hate to disparage any of them. The problem with this book is that it mixes two models. There are "cookbook" texts (which O'Reilly in particular is good at). They typically present a catalog of fairly abstruse problems within a given programming realm: "Measuring Memory Usage on Linux" is an entry in Martelli's great Python Cookbook. Then there are how-to-program-in-X books which address people who know something about programming but nothing about language X or library X. This book tries to be both at once, so it isn't great at either. Because it begins from the beginning (what is a wxPython App), It doesn't have much for the semi-experienced user of wxPython, though the last chapter on "Building and Managing Applications for Distribution" is one I've learned from. On the other hand, whether a newcomer to Python could learn from the book how to build apps with wxPython, I'm not sure, though I think Rappin & Dunn's "wxPython in Action" does a better job of that. Even the Table of Contents gives the double game away: it's organized by simplest-to-more-complex, the way a beginner needs, not by functional categories of problems, which is what a more experienced programmer is looking for.

Picked this book up as I'm starting development of a major GUI using the toolkit, and I'm very glad I did. The documentation online covers most of the classes and functions just fine, but it's short on examples and there is a surprising dearth of tutorial sites for a large toolkit like this one. A good book is thus very helpful. Precord's writing is clear and succinct, and his examples illustrate the goal of each section without being overly complicated.

The book could use an update for wxPython 2.9.5+, given that the update has support for Python 3 and a number of tweaks to the back end. However, as long as the developer keeps the online documentation handy when actually implementing, there should be no problem, as the book itself focuses on concepts and execution. Details of which class appears in which module are secondary. This is a fairly minor con in a really excellent resource.

Note: Amazon really should separate out the Kindle and physical copies of the book, since the reviews of the Kindle version being lumped in with this pull down the score for reasons that have nothing to do with the content.

This book got me started developing GUI's using wxPython quickly. However you will quickly outgrow the book so I'm hoping the author releases a more comprehensive revision someday. If you are new to wxPython, I highly recommend. If you are not, it may just become just another book that occupies your bookshelf.

The Kindle version is very difficult to navigate (moving from one page to another in a windows environment) and almost impossible to copy and paste examples into IDLE. Disappointed that it does not support the latest version of Python.

This author did take it too easy. The two last chapters are good but all of the beginning chapters and recipes are not as good as they could have been written. My 2 cents.

Excellent source to get started on wxPython. All the code in the book is available for download as well. A must for anyone starting to work with wxPython!

Gets you up to speed quickly. Easy to understand and will help add professionalism to your application.
Great book!
