This book covers the unexplored secrets of Python, delve into its depths, and uncover its mysteries.

You'll unearth secrets related to the implementation of the standard library, by looking at how modules actually work. You'll understand the implementation of collections, decimals, and fraction modules. If you haven't used decorators, coroutines, and generator functions much before, as you make your way through the recipes, you'll learn what you've been missing out on.

We'll cover internal special methods in detail, so you understand what they are and how they can be used to improve the engineering decisions you make. Next, you'll explore the CPython interpreter, which is a treasure trove of secret hacks that not many programmers are aware of. We'll take you through the depths of the PyPy project, where you'll come across several exciting ways that you can improve speed and concurrency.

Finally, we'll take time to explore the PEPs of the latest versions to discover some interesting hacks.
