Hi,

Is the second edition of the Python Cookbook worth getting if you have
the first edition? How much new material is there in the 2nd edition?

Thanks,

Will McGugan

While I have dived into it yet, I received a copy from O'Reilly last week.
It's about twice the size of the first edition, and I noticed it has a
chapter at the end related to Python 2.3 and 2.4, so my guess would be it's
worth it.

(Submit a recipe to the cookbook website that's accepted for the 3rd edition
and you can get it as a comp from O'Reilly.
