I am sorry to say -- I have the same basic problem...

It appears that if you want to read about
   1)--perl
   2)--"C"
   3)--jokes in a techinical book
   4)-- British TV
   5)-- Family history stuff
   6)-- and so on.....
then purchase any of the sorted books on Python. 

But if you want a book like, for example the manuals of the old Microsoft Quickbasic which sticks to the core subject, that presents Python such as;
  "This is Python"
the book is hidden in the market place or has not been written yet. 
I have search and amoung all I have collected, you still need to use more than one to fully understand or use Python.
