I started reading the early release version of Fluent Python, which is excellent. Hopefully I'll get around to doing a review at some point, but in the meantime this particular quote sticks out:
Optimization is the altar where maintainability is sacrificed.
It's important to aim for clean code before optimization because the code won't be any cleaner once it's optimized.
