I recently stumbled accross a book on amazon called *Automate the Boring Stuff with Python*. As it turns out, that book was written by a guy called **Al Sweigart**. And not only that, but Mr. Sweigart also has his own [blog](https://alsweigart.com/). A great guy! Now on his blog he does - of course - advertise for his own books. Yes, he has written quite a bit of stuff in his life. And after reading a handful of chapters here and there, I can also tell you that guy knows what he's talking about. And he knows how to teach that stuff. So if you are interested in some of the topics he has written something about: give it a try! I don't think you'll regret it. But here comes the best part of all: You can read __all__ his books __for free__. Yes, each chapter comes on its own webpage, so you kind of have to click yourself through. But you know what? If you actually read one of his books, say the aforementioned [Automate the Boring Stuff with Python](https://automatetheboringstuff.com/), you might find chapter 12 very interesting, since it teaches how to automagically download entire web-archives.
