Hi Thanos

The first book I like is "The Quick Python Book" by Daryl Harms (good
book to get you acquainted with python). Follow up by three books that I
like is "Core Python Programming" by Wesley Chun, "Python: Visual
QuickStart Guide" by Chris Fehily and the book I have just started using
but find that it is really good so far is "Python How to Program" by
Dietel (this book is expensive though).
