If you are starting Python now, I would recommend starting with Python 3.
Many of the existing libraries have been ported to Python 3 and there are
some cool nice features like async etc. in Python 3 which are not available
in Python 2. Python 3 is becoming main stream slowly.

A Byte of Python, Swaroop C H

Python Cookbook, David Beazley, 3rd edition, O'Reilly Media

Dive Into Python 3, Mark Pilgrim
