One of the hallmarks of successful developers is continuous learning. The best developers I know don't just keep learning, it's one of the things that drives them. That's why I'm excited to bring you this episode on 10 books Python developers should read.

You'll meet Timo Koola who is an avid reader and self-learner in the Python space. He's found 10 books from his experience that have had huge affects on him and we'll discuss them next.
