Tutorials and Books on Python
 
I have been searching the net for tutorials and books on Python and found a few. I am learning python now and I wanted to know what books or tutorials can you (advanced programmers of python) reccomend.
Thx in advance. :study:

Python.org's own documentation is very comprehensive. I'd start there: http://www.python.org/doc/

As for books, I've been happy with the various O'Reilly offerings (I have Learning Python, Python Cookbook, and Python & XML). Learning Python is a fine title to start with.

The python document I'm reading now. Indeed it's comprehensive. Also I will look into the "Learning Python" book. Thank you.

Why do you need a book? I know different people learn differently but I've always found it considerably easier to teach myself things. I've never read a linux book, a shell scripting book or a Python book or any other book. I started a PHP book a while ago but didn't get far until I got bored.

Try downloading some peoples scripts and playing around with them and then rewrite it yourself. Have a browser open at Google on another workspace and you'll be fine and have more money in your pocket as a side bonus.

personally I love books.
I reckon you learn loads from books.
Quite nice to lay back in bed with the perl cookbook
and find stuff you won't find in ordinary scripts.

Beginning Python from novice to professional is a really good book.

Here you can find quite a lot.

I read Dive into Python myself. And I liked it as a tutorial if you already have some python experience.

If you are new to python, but not to programming in general, I found the standard tutorial very useful.

It is quite easy to download other people's scripts and rewrite them but I also want to learn on my own. I would like to make a program or a script even though it takes me a week to finish and learn from my mistakes. This way I know exactly what I did. Oh, and the money part I will definetly make. ;)
