The new second edition of Learning Python is outstanding.  Not because of
the fact that it's recent (2004), but it just simply surpassed the first
edition in coverage.  Exceptions covered in 3 chapters, is one of my
personal reasons.

I actually put my Quick Python and Python in a Nutshell back on the
bookshelf, just for now, and stopped doing anything with my current Python
app (a backup program), until I've read this edition of L.P.  and inhaled
the concepts better.
You asked for books, specifically, so I won't mention the tutorials
available on the net.
Have fun,
