|| Learning Python,
Ascher, 2004, ISBN 0596002815, O'Reilly.
The first edition was published in 1999 and was subsequently updated to
the 2.2 version of Python in 2004. I
highly recommend this book as the first book on Python you should
get. Its a very
readable language reference, with lots of short examples. It
chapters on some of the more advanced topics and some of the
Slashdot has a review of the new version.
Even if you have a copy of the original edition I think you should get a copy of the new edition, it has a lot of new material, as well, some of the general sections have been significantly improved.
Even if you are an experienced C++ programmer you'll benefit from reading this when you start coding Python as Python's object system and language have may built-in capabilities that C++ lacks (so you will be unaware of and probably will not even think to look for).

This is a very good introduction to using wxPython to create GUI applications in Python. Currently I've read about 70% of the book and found it quite easy to follow, the examples are quite concise, but still illustrate some powerful concepts (especially the grid table in Chapter 5 and the simple drawing application in chapter 6). Source code to the examples is available from the publisher's web site, but sometimes one learns more from actually typing in some of these that just downloading and running them. That's one of the beauties of Python, you can actually type in some stuff in the Python shell window and interactively experiment with things.
