A good place when you are starting is to check de documentation http://www.python.org/doc/ , but if you are looking for
one book, i think that "Python in a Nutshell" from O' Reilly series ( http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596001889 ) is one good alternative.
For couple of examples you have the cookbook's sites.
I think that "Dive into python" is a little bit advanced for a first project, but a good place that you can check when you have some knowleadge.
Hope this can help you
