It seems like the use of python is exploding in the sciences.  But I was surprised to run across a pointer to a new book "Matplotlib for Python Developers".  It never occurred to me that Matplotlib would get a book at this point.  Just for kicks I went to and searched on "matplotlib" and found a number of interesting results:

Matplotlib for Python Developers
Beginning Python Visualization: Crafting Visual Transformation Scripts
Python Scripting for Computational Science
A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python

These were all published in 2009!  A couple more clicks brought up two more related books:

Financial Modelling in Python $87.75 (down from $130)
Computational Modeling and Complexity Science: PYTHON $13.95

Looks like some information carries more value.
