I will agree with this, it seems to be a good book for beginners (both
at programming and Python). It was the first Python book that I
purchased, and would reccomend it for either a beginner or a more
experienced programmer who is new at Python.

"Programming Python" seems to be more oriented to an experienced
programmer. I particularly liked the follow a simple application
approach from start to end. The book does jump around a bit however,
and I would only reccomend it for someone who is a somewhat
experienced programmer, who wants to learn Python. I do wish it came
with a more up to date CD however.
