Programmer's Python: Everything is an Object (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 18 July 2018

This book sets out to explain the deeper logic in the approach that Python 3 takes to classes and objects. The subject is roughly speaking everything to do with the way Python implements objects. That is, in order of sophistication, metaclass; class; object; attribute; and all of the other facilities such as functions, methods and the many “magic methods” that Python uses to make it all work. This is a fairly advanced book in the sense that you are expected to know basic Python. However, it tries to explain the ideas using the simplest examples possible. 

<ASIN:1871962587>

Despite it's subtitle "Something Completely Different", a reference to Montyy Pythonesque humor, as long as you can write a Python program, and you have an idea what object-oriented programming is about, it should all be understandable and, as important, usable.
