Personally I'd recomend 'The Quick Python Book' by Harms and McDonald.
It tok me from someone who had hacked a bit of perl and BASIC quite a
while ago, to someone who programs fairly large things in Python very
quickly.   Covers both basic and fairly advanced topics from both a Unix
and Windows perspective.  It also makes a quite useful reference book.
