Thats exactly what my book tries to do although it focuses on Python. 
But its really more about the general principles than learning the 
idioms of the language.

The bad news is that it's now 12 years old and the language has moved 
on, although most (all?) of the code will still work in Python 2.7. 
Should be available through your local library or cheap on Amazon 

The good news is that an updated and extended version is on the
web (see the.sig) and is free! :-)
