Learning Python - Resources Needed

Hi there. I've decided that my first real language I want to learn to
program in is Python. I've been using the Python tutorials at
Python.org, but I'm looking for something a little more in depth.

Can anyone recommend any good books for a someone new to python, and
to programming? I should mention that while I am new, I do catch on
quickly, so I'm not looking for a book that gives just the bare
basics.

Also, any good web references would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

Maybe my book 'A Byte of Python' would be helpful for you:

You might want to look at my site at www.awaretek.com/plf.html which
has a lot of Python book reviews and also links to an awful lot of
online tutorials.

Learning Python 2nd ed seems to me the best choice for an introduction
more complete than the tutorials. You may be frustrated by the slow
pace, however. I'm still looking for a book that presents the basic
principles clearly and concisely, and has lots of examples and
exercises separate from the main presentation, so you can move as
quickly or as slowly as you like.

I've written a chapter on Python OOP, which attempts to do this.
http://ece.arizona.edu/~edatools/Python I have not yet presented it
to students, so early feedback will be greatly appreciated.
