Hi Jeff,

Welcome to Python programming!

If you want to learn Python quickly and easily, I would HIGHLY recommend 
that you check out "How to think like a computer scientist: Learning 
with Python."  It is a free, downloadable book that teaches Python from 
the ground up.  It also contains many fun, step-by-step examples for the 
beginner to try out -- along with an object-oriented approach later in 
the book.

Check it out:
