Hm, depends of course, how good your programming skills are in the
languages you knwo already, but I rely on the book "Beginning Python -
From Novice to Professional" by Magnus Lie Hetland, published by Apress.
And for GUI programming I use the official wxPython book. Both books are
really worth their money and with some programming skills there's no
need to read every line because it's easy to navigate through the books
and find the function/structure/whatever you're looking for.
> I'm a C++, Java and C programmer, and I'm searching for a (preferably

> way" of doing something.
> Ideally, I'm searching for a book like "Effective C++" or "Effective
> Java", that does not lose time teaching what is a class, or a
> function, or a loop, but that enters into details and describes not
> only the "how", but also the "why".
> I read the book "Dive into Python", but I found too schematic and not
> enough advanced for my interests.
> I generally do not like books from O'Reilly, while I prefere those
> from Addison Wesley.
> Best regards.
