    The best beginner's guide, for the mentally engaged proto-programmer and the experienced programmer new to Python is probably just the Python Tutorial at the official website.

    It blows my mind how little attention this gets from noobs. I suppose its the confidence that printed books give.

    And the tutorial works if you use python interactively while reading. Experiment!

    A good book that I used while learning Python was "Program Arcade Games with Python and Pygame". It's free and online, just search it. I recommend as a good starting point. You'll get the most out of it if you try to do the review questions at the end of every chapter.
