Python documentation

Hello,

I have been learning python for some time using the dive into python
book. I am interested to know if anyone can recommend a book which
covers more advanced topics like threading and potentially GUI style
coding.

Regards,

Ronald

Lutz's book, "Programming Python" covers a lot of advanced topics,
including building various GUI-oriented programs with Tkinter. There's
also "Core Python Programming" by Chun, which has some good internals
stuff in it.

I prefer using wxPython for my GUI work, so I'll also recommend Robin
Dunn's "wxPython in Action".

If you don't at least browse "The Python Cookbook," you are missing
a chance at something you'll find great. Note, I am strongly of the
opinion that what makes a book great is anachronistic, so check it out
before you buy.

I love information-dense books like Knuth, Strunk & White, and the
original C manual. I know people who hate these. I think of them as
technical poetry, rather than prose. My guess is that Alex Martelli
(editor for the most recent cookbook) is not discoursive enough for
some; I appreciate that fact and understand others are in the "we read
Knuth so you don't have to" camp. personally, I've loved most hours
I've spent on Knuth -- I'd hate to deprve anyone of that experience.
