This bibliography covers the sources I have used while writing this book. Most of the books are fairly to extremely well known, such as Code Complete or Design Patters. It's the closest the programming field has to a canon.
A lot of the generally recommended books, such as Fowler's Refactoring are not really suited to Python. These books (and this holds for Design Patterns as well) are more concerned with C++ or Java — that is, rather low-level languages where the developer has to do a lot himself.
