Are there any books geared to experienced Python programmers (or all of the people who really KNOW Python busy writing code and not books)?  Is there a book that you find indispensable when coding in Python?

Thanks for asking. Granted, some of these are in the docs or online, but sometimes an author can explain things better. 

A thorough Tkinter reference with Python syntax for a non Tcl/Tk programmer

metaclasses / decorators

functional programming

cross-platform programming

profiling / optimizing

code coverage checking


I know this would be a monstrous task, but a discussion on how to use some of the "must have" add-ons.
