I'm no programmer by trade, but dabble in Python/wxPython for fun and
bought the book several months ago. I've found it to be very good.
There are a lot of good online tutorials as well, but I was never sure
if they were up to date with the later versions of the framework - so
the book was blessing to me. I found the book to be very useful and
clearly written. It's no reference manual (the online docs serve that
purpose) but I think it really helped me get a good foundation in how
to program with wxPython. IMO a good book is still more useful and
efficient than online articles or tutorials for a newbie (like me)
most of the time. It's nice to be able to thumb through and study some
concept without flipping back and forth to some web page.

I own a lot of computer books, and I've found Learning Python (an
O'Reilly Book) and wxPython in Action to be my two most useful ones.
