I am currently working my way through "Python Programming: An 
introduction to computer science" by John Zelle. Published by Franklin, 
Beedle & Associates. ISBN: 1-887902-99-6. Book's home page:

I have a small but quite good Python library and this is the best Python 
(actually best programming) book I have ever read. It is written as a 
text for a first year (US) college level course. Python is used because 
experience with other languages showed that their learning curves got in 
the road of the primary function of the course.

"Problem Solving With Algorithms And Data Structures Using Python" by 
Bradley N. Miller and David L. Ranum (ISBN-10: 1590280539 or ISBN-13: 
978-1590280539 Book's home page: is 
on my Amazon wish list to follow on from Zelle. This book is, as I 
understand it, a second year text. See the book's home page for content 

I hope that helps,

There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to 
conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the 
introduction of a new order of things—Niccolo Machiavelli, /The Prince/, 
ch. 6
