There's a lot out there, and what works for you will depend on who you are and what sort of programming you've done (if any) and what you're interested in learning.

The MIT open course is a little half-assed (the lecturer seems to have done no preparation other than a few decades of programming... :) ) but it might be a good starting point - there are two free e-books linked in the readings for the course which have good information in them.

DIC has a pretty search bar on the top corner of the page, I'd suggest you use it. Here's the first result for "Python Books."

Admittedly, now that a year has gone by, I've changed my stance on py2 or py3 books... it doesn't really matter, just get a good book.
