Python - Beginner to Solid Programmer

Hello, i have a question to ask. There are many ways to learn to program a language, and Python is one of them. I have bought Programming Python, 2nd ed. b/c i hear how 'sound' of a book it is to give you a solid level of programming knowledge in Python. It says it is meant to be a sequel to Learning Python, another Oreilly book.

My question is:
Do you suggest reading these two books for an overall good base as a Python programmer?

Thank you for your time,

yea, those are good ones, anything by mark lutz is good (imho). i like 'practical python' by magnus lie hetland, 'python, how to program' by dietel associates(not for beginners(doesn't spend enough time on the fundimentals(imho))), 'python in a nutshell' <o'reilly> as a good reference book for looking up forgotten syntax, and a non-python specific book ' design patterns explained' <shalloway/trott> to get you in the object oriented frame of mind.
