    I would probably suggest the official Python tutorial or with one of he intros from the intro page on the Python home page, before moving on to “Dive Into Python” as AutoJay suggested.

    http://www.python.org/doc/2.4/
    http://www.python.org/doc/Intros.html

    You might also want to pick up a copy of "Learning Python" from O'reilly.

    Welcome to the Python community .

    a better choice for you


    http://www.ug.cs.usyd.edu.au/~comp5315/

    This is an entire course online for the beginner with included reference notes as links. This might also encourage you to delve into python more as it's not as deep as diveintopython, so makes a good first step. After it though, the diveintopython is an entire book online for download (Free)

    This link will get you thinking of python from an Internet point of view, that most books miss anyway.

    Cheers

    Well, once you get the basics down using a few tutorials or books, the docs begin to take over. The docs for Python are just exellent, but, not for a beginner.
