best way to learn

Hey all.  I'm a python newbie, but I have experience
in other very 
high level languages, mainly php.  
I was wondering what is the best way to become
proficient in python 
quickly?  
I'm actually a pretty decent php programmer, so I
don't think I need 
something that spends too much time on the basics(ie
loops and if 
statements).  
I just need to know how things work in python.

I did do the tutorial that comes with the distro, but 
I need more than that.

Should I get a book, if so which one?  
"Learning python", "programming python", "python
cookbook"?
Or can I get pretty much everything I need on the web,
like a lot of 
good tutorials and some good language references?


If I get a book I'd like to get one that works as a
newbie tutorial 
but by the end of the book deals with some advanced
topics and will 
also work somewhat well as a reference.  Is that
asking too much? 

Should I trust the reviews at amazon.com? :) 

Any guidance appreciated.

tia,
--ed
