I found the book excellent as well. Frankly, all 'quick intros' I'd read on
the web were really difficult. Regexes are definitely important enough to
consider a book on.
The only thing which I didn't like was the fact that the python-specific
stuff was so dated (ie stil using the old regex module).
I find that I use the regexes more in perl than I do in python, at least
for the time being. I'm looking forward to seeing the new regex module
in 1.6 though.
