I thought Learning Python was a very good introduction, I was a CS student
with experience in several languages. There are a few things to you need to
"get" once about Python, and the book explains them well. It doesn't go very
deep, but then, there's not that much to know, Python is simplicity.

Programming Python I found a bit chaotic, never really used it much.

Don't know Core Python Programming.
