Then you can't go wrong with the o'reilly book. It is a most excellent
tome for precisely the subjects that you outline there.
Be aware that the book is written for Python 1.5 so a couple of
things, like the need to convert unicode strings passed in by COM
objects are outdated. As you already have been programming python for
over year this shouldn't be a problem.
