    it was useful and it help me to understand regular expression I want to read this book again

    Mastering Python Regular Expression has a promising title and I certainly wanted to bring my Python RE skills to true mastery but I was sorely disappointed by this book It consists of little than the authors’ rephrasing of the official Python API documentation Regular expressions are notoriously complex and reuire loads of examples and try it yourself assignments to get down but this book only presents each aspect of REs in an extremely concise and deathly boring fashion before moving on Before you know it the book has finished it is only 110 pages and you'll hardly be any comfortable with regex than when you startedThe book definitely has a dodgy air about it The last part of the book is essentially an advertisement for the commercial software RegexBuddy I’ll be sure to avoid any offerings from Packt Publishing in the future As an example of just how little effort was put into this book from the publisher's part the non native English of the two Spanish speaking authors was never polished by an editor Conseuently the book reads as very unprofessional sometimes even annoying eg “The IEEE thought their POSIX standard has tried to standardize and give better Unicode support to the regular expression syntax and behaviors This is called the POSIX flavor of the regular expressions”As a general introduction to regular expressions you would be much better off with O’Reilly's Mastering Regular Expressions though it uses Perl for teaching the particular regular expression dialect it uses is very similar to Python's own When it comes to exploiting REs in Python pretty much any API documentation or online tutorial will be just as good if not much better than this book

    This book is at least useful with about 20 pages of it I was able to accomplish my task to replace a project url ingitconfig files But I found much efficient way to learn regexps practice on HackerRankSo put the book away and solve tutorial organized challenges

    Short but very useful book I know than i did before it

  5. Andreas Kontokanis Andreas Kontokanis says:

    It is clear a misleading title for this kind of book It is almost a pocket reference guide with very little examples I don't believe I mastered anything by reading this book I only had a glimpse of what I can do with python and RegEx It would be nicer to have a title like Presenting Regex with Python Surely there are much better ways to learn RegEx and this book doesn't add anything than Python some websites together RegEx can be a very difficult subject to master and you need examples and try and error examples to master it I finished the book and I am not sure that I learned than a cheatsheet in python could give me

    The book seems to be basic and lack of practical examples but i was able to use to revise a few concepts such as named patternExample match researchr'?Poz' 'Vol 100 OZ' flagsreIGNORECASEprintmatchgroup'ounceval'sub with named patternExample printresubr'?Poz' 'This item is ounce' 'Vol 100 OZ'non named group ? i started to read this book cos i forgot this pattern

    Small Crisp book to get your hands on regular expressions

  8. Jin Shusong Jin Shusong says:

    I think this book is excellent for a beginner to understand regular expressions

  9. Pavel Karateev Pavel Karateev says:

    Simply an excellent Python regex book Short and sharp Read it if you need to become familiar with the topic asap I recommend to use IPython notebook for book examples that way you will gain motor memory and create a personal HowTo manual
