If you've never programmed before I'd recommend running through
one of the non-programmers intros first, then go back to Lutz.
It will be faster I think in the long term.
There is a list of non programmers intros on the Python site, I am,
of course, biased towards my own :-)
Also don;t neglect the official tutor that comes with Python, but
like Lutz it assumes some previous experience in other languages.
