Dive into python is a very good one. It is free too.
http://diveintopython.org/

Try it out.
If you want more of examples of how everything is done, then Python
Cookbook is another one.
You can get many recipes at http://code.activestate.com/recipes/langs/python/
too - the book is just selected recipes from this site.
