I picked up a copy of Programming Python, by Mark Lutz [] and have found it very helpful.  Even though I picked up the old first edition (by mistake, should have gotten the 2nd Edition!) it is full of pearls, a lot of wisdom that would have taken me a fair while to discover on my own.  I can pick it up, read for 15 minutes, and have sharper tools in my Python shed.

You might check out that book - if you find its pearls trivial, then you may be wiser than you realize (and I will look forward to absorbing the pearls of Python web page you'll be writing for folks like me)
