Program Arcade Games With Python and Pygame
Program Arcade Games With Python and Pygame - 1

The book makes a good intro Python textbook without the high-costs and boredom from a normal introductory text.
The original web site is still free if you don't want to pay for the book. If you are looking for a low cost/no cost introductory textbook for computer science, check it out.
I've put this book together and refined it from year-to-year based on student feedback during their first semester of programming at Simpson College.
This is a first-semester course and assumes no prior knowledge of programming. I've successfully run hundreds of students through this course and had them create their own arcade games. Each time I refine the course and use their questions to make the book that much better.
Plus, there are Russian and Turkish translations thanks to some volunteers!
