I've purchased a couple of books on Python and I keep going back to Python
in a Nutshell.  It's about the only printed text I keep on my desk all the
time.  It has a nice introduction to the language and includes the
specification, too.
If you're familiar with programming,<> is
good (and it's free online if you don't want to spend the $ on the dead-tree
version).  I'm not sure how up to date it is, though.

Also, don't overlook the online tutorials. They're quite good.
