Perhaps not as your first step, but I would highly recommend that you
have a look at the wxPython demo. I almost always look at it first
when I want to learn to do something using wxPython. It requires a
separate download.

There's a new book that will be coming out soon which I definitely
intend to buy:
The cost of shipping to Canada is such that I will wait for it to be
available through other channels (Chapter's or Amazon).  However, from
the link above, you can buy an e-book, which has about half the
chapters available (it looks like the whole thing will be available
within a month).  I have heard great things about this book from
wxPython users whose opinion I highly respect.

Another path may be to use Dabo, which includes a wrapper around
wxPython, and is supposed to be easier to learn.  I've heard good
things about it, but never tried it myself.
