-Python bindings for Amazon's Product Advertising API
-====================================================
-
-This module offers a light-weight access to the latest version of the Amazon
-Product Advertising API without getting in your way. 
-
-The `Amazon Product Advertising API`_ provides programmatic access to Amazon's
-product selection and discovery functionality. It has search and look up
-capabilities, provides information on products and other features such as
-Reviews, Similar Products and New and Used listings.
-
-.. _Amazon Product Advertising API: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html
-
-Basic usage
-===========
-
-In order to use this API you'll obviously need an Amazon Associates Web Service
-account for which you must with Amazon at http://aws.amazon.com. Each account
-contains an *AWSAccessKeyId* and a *SecretKey*. 
-
-Here is an example how to use the API to search for books of a certain 
-publisher::
-
-    AWS_KEY = '...'
-    SECRET_KEY = '...'
-    
-    api = API(AWS_KEY, SECRET_KEY, 'de')
-    node = api.item_search('Books', Publisher='Galileo Press')
-
-The ``node`` object returned is a `lxml.objectified`_ element. All its 
-attributes can be accessed the pythonic way::
-    
-    total_results = node.Items.TotalResults.pyval
-    total_pages = node.Items.TotalPages.pyval
-    
-    # get all books from result set and 
-    # print author and title
-    for book in node.Items.Item:
-        print '%s: "%s"' % (book.ItemAttributes.Author, 
-                            book.ItemAttributes.Title)
-
-Please refer to the more extensive `documentation`_ for more details.

-
-Status
-======
-
-This module is still undergoing development. All operations can be used with
-the API's ``call(Operation=...)`` method. Additionally, there is a number of 
-convenience methods that include for instance additional error checking.
-These are currently limited to:
-   
-- ``ItemLookup``
-- ``ItemSearch``
-- ``SimilarityLookup``
-- ``BrowseNodeLookup``
-
-More functionality is to follow as development progresses. 
-
-Installation
-============
-
-In order to install python-amazon-product-api you can use::
-
-    pip install python-amazon-product-api
-    
-or download the source package from 
-http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-amazon-product-api, untar it and run ::
-    
-    python setup.py install
-
-You'll also find binaries there to make your life easier if you happen to use
-a Windows system. If not, please send me an e-mail and complain loudly!
-
-Development
-===========
-
-The development version is available `bitbucket.org`_. Feel free to clone the 
-repository and add your own features. ::
-    
-    hg clone http://bitbucket.org/basti/python-amazon-product-api/
-    
-Patches are always welcome! Please make sure that your change does not break 
-the tests!
