Che, I've done several superficial web programs over the years, and I'm 
inclined to agree with those who suggest trying some imple CGI programs 
first to understand how it works under the covers.

That being said, for an upcoming personal project, I'm going to be using 
at least CherryPy and perhaps some other Turbogears components, and 
perhaps even Turbogears itself.

To that end, I've found the Turbogear parts of the book "Professional Python Frameworks: Web 2.0 Programming with Django and 
Turbogears" ( 
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/productCd-0470138092.html ) to 
be very helpful in understanding Turbogears.  This may just be a point of 
personal preference, but I found it a better explanation than the 
Turbogears book "rapid Web Applications with Turogears" referred to at 

You may wish to try a few simple web programs, and then look at whether a 
framework (whether small like CherryPy or big like Turbogears, Zope or 
Django) would be appropriate for you.
