How to learn python if I'm very familar with C++

Hi,

I've been using C++ for a few years and have developed a few projects
in C++. And I'm familar with OO and template metaprogramming.

There are some book like "Learning Perl". It is a little bit tedious
for me, because more material in that book seems obvious for me. I want
some book describe the difference between C++ and python such that I
could grasp python quickly. Would you please give me some infomation on
this?

Thanks,
Peng

Me too. I programmed in nothing but C++ for years, but this book made
learning Python easy.

there are tons of tutorials available on the web. if your familiar with
C++ then the tutorial that comes with the latest download of the
interpreter should be fine. for myself though i learned python with
this book: http://apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=10013

Take a few hours to read through the tutorial at
http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html

Then spend some time browsing the rest of the documentation.

After you have a basic understanding of the syntax, browse the Python
Cookbook.
