> 2. Mark Lutz'z: Learning Python

While I appreciate the compliment I feel I should point out that my 
book is really a beginners tutorial and, even when I wrote it, I 
expected it to have limited value as a reference book (except 
perhaps for some of the CS concepts). Lutz' book is similar 
but is at least more in-depth although even it can be quickly 

The best current ready reference is Python in a Nutshell.

And Lutz' much bigger volume - Programming Python - is 
also worth keeping on your desk if not in your bag...
