Once you've gone through one of these, you should know enough to get the 
most out of the Quick Python book.  And the QP book is impressive for 
having been written as a "readable" reference book, so that you can read 
it and get a lot out of it and then you can use it to refer back later 
when you need a clarification.

We all know computer books cost between $30 and $50 (in the US).  This 
is big bucks for some of us.  The Quick Python Book, at $40, is a great 
book in my opinion in how much mileage you can get out of it.
