I dont know how your head works, but i learn alot faster though looking at examples.
My recommendation would be looking though a couple of codesnippets at:
http://aspn.activest...ython/Cookbook/
or some of the tutorials at:
http://www.devshed.com

Its really easy and alot cheaper than buying books.
Good Luck

Hey i would recommend you a "How to Think like a (Python) Programmer" and "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python" they are pretty good and they are free (GNU) you can find them here:
http://www.greenteap...om/thinkpython/

I hope those books help you.
