I have several Python books and am currently working my way through John 
Zelle's PYTHON PROGRAMMING: An Introduction to Computer Science 
(Publisher: Franklin, Beedle & Associates, ISBN-10: 1887902996, ISBN-13: 
978-1887902991). I think this is a very good introduction to both Python 
AND programming I would highly recommend it.

If you finish the Zelle book then you can go onto Problem Solving With 
Algorithms And Data Structures Using Python by Bradley N. Miller and 
David L. Ranum (Publisher: Franklin Beedle & Associates, ISBN-10: 
1590280539, ISBN-13: 978-1590280539).

These are equivalent to Python 101 and 201.

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
