You might want to start off at Python for Beginners, there are
several documents there that would be a good starting place. What you
might want to read after that would depend a lot on what you want to do;
i.e., GUIs, networking, Internet, etc.
A good starting book would be Learning Python, it's a good book, but
you might grow out of it quickly. A few other good books are Python
Programming on Win32 and Programming Python. I've also seen some
good reviews for Core Python Programming as a Beginner/Intermediate
level book, but I've never read it myself.
