|Would take 36 ½ hours if it took a day. Obviously, the
author’s interest in time is purely theoretical.
—Audrey Thompson, famous author of Pythonettes: The Little-Known Story of Computer Road Shows, expert stationary bicyclist, and wife of Ivan Van Laningham
|Having been “in” on the Python book from the very beginning (I am the
author’s Mother-in-Law and was right there Johnny at the rathole when the
story had its instigation). However, it has been 10 long fruitless
years and very little material has come my way. Finally upon receiving
the manuscript I tore open the wrapping with baited breath. Imagine
my surprise when I found that after 24 hours I not only did not understand
the Python language—somehow mixed rather colorfully with the Mayan language
and culture—I did not understand any sentences at all except for several
pointed references to Mayan sexuality and strange eating habits.
I can only worry for the poor hapless purchaser.

on the subject and I should know.

|I didn’t think I could learn a new language in 24 hours!
—Charles E. Thompson, Jr.
|She does an excellent job on the animals she wants to paint, but on
the animals she does not want to paint she gives little effort. Her heart
just isn’t in it! These are [...] merely scribbled on a sheet of paper.
[N.B. This is actually a review of Annika Gilray’s artwork, not my book, but I thought you would want to know about it anyway.]
|This literary critic found the oeuvre within most interesting.
Compelled to “stay the course” she found that by reading between the lines
she was able to decipher just exactly what the author undoubtedly wished
Having risen to the occasion, this esteemed person was titillated by the message within.
My accompanying manual, due out in bookstores soon, will provide revealing
information essential to the understanding of Teach Yourself Python
