My favorites for getting started were...
For basics start with.
  • "Sams Teach Yourself Python in 24 Hours"
  • "The Quick Python Book"
For more advanced reference.
  • "Python Essential Reference"
  • "Python Cookbook"
I do a lot of command line stuff so pretty much ignored all the tkinter stuff.

If you are interested in "Python Essential Reference", the 3rd edition covers Python 2.4.

Hi

Why read a book, when you have the Internet (with updated information). I think this is a good starting point.

-kudos

Found another book I like over the weekend.
"Python Phrasebook" by Brad Dayley.
Lots of small scripts as examples of common tasks organized in several headings. Clear and easy to follow. Not in depth or overly technical, good reminders and examples for tasks I don't do often, new things I'd like to try. Also some good nuggets for common tasks that need strong understanding.

This is a great starting point. I may have to make this thread sticky now.

Python Cookbook is great. I built my first multi-threaded app right out of these pages. It talks asyncronously to the serial port on my PC. I may have to post that code, come to think of it.

A great e-book mentioned in a later thread by spacecoyote that is worth repeating often is How to Think Like a Computer Scientist - Learning With Python. It starts from scratch, but also contains some great thoughts as skills develop
