Lots of online documentation and tutorials here:

If you are working on Windows, "Python Programming
on Win32" is a great book that has "Windows specific"

Monitoring this list and watching for "newbie"
questions is also beneficial as many will help
with examples.

I found Python Bible by Brueck and Tanner to be
another excellent book (I purchased both books
at Books a Million).
