[Tutor] not a good tutorial, in my view

It appears the Python 2.0 tutorial are not written for beginners without programming background.
The language is claimed to be a desktop program for everyone but the tutorial is already hard to read.
I am currently learning Python through the tutorial but I think it just neglected the programming level of the general readship.
There are several questions that I hope to seek answer from the veterans of Python programming:
1. I typed:
# and it produced the following result:
>>> 'yes\'he said'
>>>>>> "\"yes,\" he said"
'"yes," he said'
what is the use of this slash?
2. What is the use of 'strip' here?
>>> string.strip('str') + 'ing'
and why this does not work:
>>> string.strip('str') 'ing'
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
It is explained in the tutorial, but I can not understand.
3. In the tutorial 3.1.3. Why there is the unicode part. what's the use of unicode in programming?
I input this but why it did not produce the desired result?
>>> u'Hello\\u0020World !'
The desired result should be
>>>u'Hello World !'
Under what conditions will the Interpreter shows the second prompt(...)? In the turtorial, it reads "for continuation lines it prompts with the second prompt...".
I am a little frustrated by the tutorial, can anyone show me some links to the easier tutorial (for instance, Alan's)? Or hopefuly there will be a beginner's version of the tutorial.
Thank you very much!
