Kind of hard to say.  Depends on your general experience level, e.g.
how much math do you know?  Some other people have suggested good
books about Python, but those don't say so much about programming in
general.  For that, you may need to look to other kinds of books.  I
really liked "Software Tools", by Kernighan and Plauger, but it's
about a billion years out of date by now.
