Short but very useful book , I know than i did before it Small Crisp book to get your hands on regular expressions Simply an excellent Python regex book Short and sharp Read it if you need to become familiar with the topic asap I recommend to use IPython notebook for book examples, that way you will gain motor memory and create a personal HowTo manual. It is short, but very useful book on regular expressions in Python I found the chapter on performance and optimization helpful. The book did the job I knowthan I did before about Regular Expressions. Nice, short and to the point.
