Can someone who has read it list out these?

Hmm! It will be vague because it was ten months  ago and can't remember any particulars.
One can learn the data types. Their very basics operations, functions and methods. One or two at most snippets of code illustrating what the author is meaning. Without a more detailed description of what is possible to do. This allows fast learning. Which is a shame because suddenly the code becomes more complex. It's hard to understand it for a new one in programming. Someone may consider he/she is stupid or nothing happens by him/her. It didn't happen with me but I admit that I didn't understand the last few code snippets or programs. It looks like the documentation is more easy to follow than the book. No consistency. Gaps which could not be made. And one began to think he/she misses something then returns back but again same feeling and don't know why. Finally, it ends with that one is pretty confused.

I have not read Learn Python The Hard Way, but I know a lot of people really dislike that book. What is the reason?

I suggest you review this thread, and if you have any questions, ask them. Otherwise, I think your answer is here....
Feel like you're not getting the answers you want? Checkout the help/rules for things like what to include/not include in a post, how to use code tags, how to ask smart questions, and more.

Pro-tip - there's an inverse correlation between the number of lines of code posted and my enthusiasm for helping with a question :)

Mekire linked not one but two nice list of lots criticisms, it's not just one point. Did you see them already?

Unless I'm confused here, Mek posted that after I asked. Someone just quoted me after that.
