My source is "Learning Python" by Mark Lutz &
David Ascher published by O'Reilly page 4:
"Python is an object-oriented language, from the ground up. Its class model
supports advanced notions such as polymorphism, operator overloading, and
multiple inheritance; yet in the context of Python's dynamic typing,
object-oriented programming (OOP) is remarkably easy to apply. In fact, if
you don't understand these terms, you'll find they are much easier to learn
with Python than with just about any other OOP language available."
Having started with C++ and then having picked up Python, I heartily concur
with the passage above.
