I was/am a python newbie beginning to learn python with this excellent book.
I think it would have been much easier if there were more comparisions 
of features to other mainstream languages which one likely already knows 
  (C, VB, Java ...)

I liked the following Java book especially because of those comparisions:

http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/0130894680/qid=1104474997/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl/302-1345611-4845666

The included comparisions helped me to get into the Java language more 
quickly.
