Actually it is being shipped already. Mine arrived today from Amazon!
I'm a econ graduate student trying to do the computational assignments
in Python, and these resources seem *very* helpful. Especially when
none of your professors or classmates ever used Python before, so you
have nobody to ask for help.

I don't know what's the policy for what should and what should not be
linked on SciPy's website, but I think these resources should
definitely be linked there (notably the "Cookbook" section and the
"Topical Software" section).

Best,

Guilherme
