There are a lot of great tips and best practices in the book. The examples are in iterative form, starting from non-Pythonic code and eventually converge into Pythonic code. The author also demonstrate to solve problem in Pythonic way when the use case or scope of the problem grows. The author includes some really advanced stuffs that you don't normally use or exposed to in your normal day to day usage, such as ways to optimise performance or CPU usage for video streaming across the Internet to handle scalability. Some of them took me a while to gasps the essence. There are quite a number of mistakes in code indentation which are crucial for understanding context and scope in Python. Few situational examples are not intuitive to understand and follow thoroughly. It is a book worth going through, to aware of the knowledge out there for you to leverage when you need them.
