Looking for a reference book on QT5

My boss just added writing a QT5 application in C++ to my development goals for this year. The application would involve several 'windows' with different 'widgets?' in each. Perhaps a table layout, a button pane, and perhaps a graph. It would do some basic file IO (reading and writing a file) but no networking, databases, or anything overly complicated.https://100001.onl/ https://1921681254.mx/ https://acc.onl/hotmail
For what its worth, I am a hardware centric, bare-metal, realtime, embedded software engineer! 35 years ago I did write a specialized CAD program (on a 80286!) and have dabbled with WxWidgets so some basic concepts are not completely foreign to me.
I am old school and seem to work better with a book in one hand and the keyboard/hollerith card puncher in the other. Any suggestions?
If I convinced him to do this in Python, what might that book be?
https://wiki.qt.io/Books contains a list of book - mostly C++ however.
For Python, mind that there is PyQt and the official Pyside2, which are differrent solutions with small differences.

+1 Brilliant :) Qt might even provide an interface...
When you "dabbled with WxWidgets" [my limited understanding is that there is a similarity, but Qt is considered nicer], did you do that in C++? Are you saying you would feel more comfortable with Python than C++?
Do you understand basic OOP ?
Qt heavily rely on subclassing and virtual functions override.
So while the language (python or c++) is not that important, i would
go with the language where you have the most experience using objects/classes with.

Hands-On Mobile and Embedded Development with Qt 5 http://bit.ly/HandsOnMobileEmbedded might be something to look at. :D
