Review of ‘Invent Your Own Computer Games With Python’ by Al Sweigart

Nowadays, there are very few books that teach programming as well as entertain, especially for kids. Al’s book serves both.

Primarily, this book is about making games with Python but it also serves as a ground to ‘break the ice’ for those who think that programming is only for ‘PC geeks’. According to Al, ‘Programming is not difficult. But it’s hard to find learning materials that teach you to do interesting things with programming. Other computer books cover many topics that most novice coders don’t need. This book will teach you how to program your own computer games. You’ll learn a useful skill and play a fun game to show it off!’

It allows the reader to create an interactive game using python and later develop the skills to create animation and sound using pygame, which is a very important aspect of creating games.
