Review of IronPython in Action

It isn't even published yet, but there is already a review of IronPython in Action! Noel, who works in 'cheminformatics' and is an avid Python user, has been reading the Early Access version (currently the first eleven chapters) and has posted his thoughts:
The obligatory introduction to Python is quickly and efficiently dealt with before moving on to the main subject - accessing .NET classes and creating a GUI application. For those coming from C# to IronPython, there is a whole chapter on unit testing with Python, as well as another that covers everything from Python magic methods to metaprogramming.

In short, for any serious users of IronPython, this book is a must have. It may also convince those using C# to make the switch to a better and more productive life with Python..
