I'd second the recommendation to Dive into Python; it has great practical
examples. Feel free to ask questions on the list; we're all here to help
As a non-Python tangent: if you'd like to read a textbook on learning
introductory programming, you might be interested in How to Design
The first few chapters might feel a little slow, and the language used is
not Python. But even with that, the material in the book is top notch,
better than most introductory textbooks I've seen. If I were to point
someone new to computing toward learning to program, this is the book I'd
be oblidged to recommend.
Good luck to you!
