The latest edition (3rd?) of Programming Python by Mark Lutz covers py3k
(it targets 3.0/3.1 IIRC, but the official Python docs cover the
differences between versions). The tutorial in the official docs is
short compared to a book, but it covers the basics well. The official
docs do cover each module in the standard library in great detail. It is
mainly reference, though there are a few tutorials (e.g. the logging
module has at least 2 tutorials).

If you are not restricted to 2.x, learn 3.2/3.3. 2.x is used mainly
because some major libraries (e.g., Twisted, Django) and/or other
dependencies do not support 3.x yet. There will be no 2.8, and 2.7 isn't
getting any new features AFAIK.
