Hi Cpunerd4,

For beginners, I would strongly recommend checking out 
http://www.GreenTeaPress.com -- they publish a FREE, online book that is 
used in Highschools and other educational facilities to teach Python 
programming.  Excellent -- a must have for those who wish to learn about 
the language.
