Are you a bug fan of Code Complete? =)

I need to revisit Code Complete. I read a huge amount of the first edition and about a 1/3 of the second edition. 

Although you can gather best practices from Pep8, the Zen of Python, The Python Cookbook, and other sources, it appears that a central resource for Python best practices doesn't exist.
