``Beware the man of one book.''
     Saint Thomas Aquinas

Free ($ sense) books I read and liked:

http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/thinkCSpy/  (easy)

http://diveintopython.org/  (less easy)

Both of those can be bought in dead-tree form, as can 

I'd start with the first and if you don't like it, try the next. 
Either way, multiple books compliment each other.
