This book is probably a better read for people with an intermediate understanding of Python, operating systems and parallel programming. It uses very interesting and high quality problems as examples (warning, they are not always easy to understand). I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been using Python for a few years and wants to take their understanding of the language to the next level.
Not so good: The book is probably twice as long as it should be. There's a ton of filler in here, like the odd opinion notes about hard it is moving code to a cluster, or using multiprocessing. The final section appears to be random thoughts about Python code, and has nothing to do with performance.
Also, the writing style is just simply weird. I was reading along about some topic, and all of a sudden the text says, "Ian doesn't like to have his laptop set up so that ...". I thought, "Who is Ian?, and why would I care about his opinion?" Well, it turns out he's one of the two authors. This approach is used multiple times, and boy is it jarring - such a weird way of writing, especially in a technical book.
That said, if you can wade through the strange writing and ignore all the useless fluff, there is some good content in this.
