Best Audio Books for beginners?



  • Hello everybody!

    Can anyone recommend me good audiobooks for learning Python? I'm a total beginner to Python and a novice to programming as a whole, I am kind of comfortable with VBA and dabbled a bit in M, but nothing intense in either of those.
    Now I want to dive into Python and I very much enjoy audiobooks. I googled a bit, but there seems to be so many recommendations it seems tough to pick one. I looked through the wiki and faq here, but there's no audiobooks section. I tried the search function on this sub too, but (as is often the case with the reddit search function) I didn't find much. https://9apps.ooo

    It would be nice if the audiobook had an accompanying visual component. It would also be nice if it were available on Audible. Neither of those are a requirement.



  • Hi, you can use programming training sites. They have both text and video and audio training. Or use YouTube tutorials.

    BTW,I also download and convert Audible & iTunes audiobooks to other format then play the Audio Books on my phone offline with the help of Audible Audiobook converter ,works fine,



  • I think it is better for you to learn Python by watching the relevant tutorial videos. This will be more effective than audiobooks. And, some audiobooks are protected. You can't download it unless you additionally have the aid of an audible converter.



  • Well, I think the audiobook is not a good option to learn Python since there are many abstract concept to figure out. Audiobooks are suitable for listening to when you are busy doing chores like washing dishes, mopping floors, and so forth. Here is a list of the best audiobooks of all time. I have downloaded a few of them by using Audible to MP3 Converter for playback in my MP3 player. Maybe you can have a look.

    Well, learning Python by listening to audiobooks maybe not efficient enough. I think that a book or a video(you can find a lot on YouTube and Amazon) will be better. If you want to listen to audiobooks, choose some simple themes, like self-improvement, holiday, story, Classic... (You can find them on websites about Audible audiobooks. And since you use Audible, you can use a .aax converter (it is 40% off until 1.15, 2021)to convert AAX to MP3.

    I agree. When I study I would like to listen to some simple audiobooks from Audible. And I also play them offline so that I won't be disturbed by my phone. To get Audible audiobooks offline, I use the tool Audiobook Converter Mac to help me. And then I can enjoy audiobooks offline on my phone.

  • pluralsight.com is worth the subscription. I'm not sure it's possible to learn how to write code from audio books...
