Very interesting post. And I definitely agree with you that, as much as 
everyone seems to suggest the tutorial, I find it very difficult to 
actually learn from. It helps to provide a review for the language, but 
as a newbie, I really wouldn't have learned Python from it.

I do, however, think the docs are pretty good, although I sometimes find 
myself just wishing that a function definition was simply laid out in an 
easy to read format that included all of its parameters, so I would know 
exactly what to pass to it (I guess help() is good for this though).
