Is there a bible like Larry Wall's Programming Perl or Bjarne Stroustrup's

Python in a Nutshell is a very good reference.

I second that. I also found Learning Python (Lutz & Ascher, O'Reilly
pub.) to be helpful when I first started, but Nutshell is what I keep
going back to. Very good book.

For good techniques and advanced knowledge, it's hard to beat Lutz's
tome: "Programming Python 3rd Ed." or Chun's "Core Python
Programming". Both are huge. Lutz's is a little bit more approachable
and had more extensive code examples, but I learned a lot about
Python's insides from Chun.

The cookbooks are handy too, but if you troll ActiveState already, you
may not need those.

I've read "Begining Python" written by Hetland from Apress. I enjoyed
it a lot. I also liked reading "Dive into Python" (also from Apress)
for those who already know a language. A free edition is at
diveintopython.org.
