I had more the feeling that these responses were more of the "Look, you
actually need a book to learn how to program effectively in Java

High Performance Python by Anthony Lewis (Author), et al. (*snigger*!)
might be such a book but we have to wait a few more months:
Publisher: O'Reilly Media; 1 edition (September 15, 2010)
(It has been on my wish list for several months)
To the OP: right now, Dive into Python is clearly written with people
who have experience with programming in mind. I've both the Python 2 and
Python 3 version (books). You can download a version of each for free:
