I got my pre-release e-book already.
We are excited to finally be releasing "Effective Computation in Physics - Field Guide to Research with Python" published by O'Reilly Media. This has been a labor of us over the past year. You can purchase the book here ( or check out our website ( for more information.

We are hoping for friendly technical review comments from readers. We will be incorporating these as we go.  Please understand that as an early release, parts of this book remain "raw and unedited." Many updates have already been made which may not be yet pushed up to the early release version.

We would love to see this be a supplemental course textbook, used as an introduction for new graduate or undergraduate students in research, and so on. if you are an educator and want to use this book in such a capacity, we'd love to hear from you. Now is your opportunity to influence the final product to best fit your needs!
