If you are familiar enough with the language, I would highly recommend
moving to a reference book of some sort, as I have found my reference
books much more useful. Since a great deal of Python's power comes
from its "batteries included" standard module library, it behooves you
to familiarize yourself with said batteries. The New Riders "Python
Essential Reference" book is a great book for learning about what
modules are out there, and also has lots of good info on core Python
(like syntax, builtins, exception heirarchy). Mine gets heavy use.
