I've gotten great use out of Programming Python (mainly because it has a lot
of larger full-fledged examples), Python in a Nutshell, and recently Expert
Python Programming. My copy of Python in a Nutshell is particularly
dog-eared now - it is a bit outdated (I've got notes all over the book of
things that have changed...) but it's still a great resource.
