It seems like Python is used as a coding language for part 2 of Kent Beck's book Test Driven Development. I have read the first part of that book and started appreciating the value of TDD . First part was easy to understand as the examples were in Java and that is the only language that I have worked on. How should I prepare myself to go about reading the second part of the book? What value will it provide? I do not plan to write a testing framework myself. Can I skip this entirely and go to the third section?

Everybody should learn more than one language.
Python is a great language widely used to illustrate programming concepts such as 'Cognitive Intelligence', 'Semantic Web', 'Natural language processing' to name just 3 O'Reilly titles.
Learning a little Python will make you a better Java programmer .
No, it is not mandatory to know the language used in books to get the ideas behind that. If you're interested anyways, feel free to learn it. But it's not that important. The concepts matter.
