I don't dispute your point. I think the market is still
wide open for really good Python tutorials -- in many
shapes and forms. But I think 'Learning Python' is a
step in the right direction -- from the tutorial which
comes with Python (more geared towards programmers new
to Python, but not programming). I would still recommend
it, given it's available, and not over-priced.
