Adding my 2c:

If you want to use Python 3 in a real life project and need to know if
some common libraries are ported to  or available for it, google for
Python 3 wall of fame and see if it is in the list, and is green or
red, or marked in some other appropriate way.

I can't say about very recent books. But it you are okay with somewhat
older ones (still for the 2.6 or above series, and for the 3.1/3/3 or
above, and supplement with more recent online docs, then here are few
which are quite good:

Learning Python - Lutz

Programming Python - Lutz

Python in a Nutshell - Martelli

Python Essential Reference - Beazley

Python Cookbook - different sets of authors for 2nd and 3rd edition.
