    It depends on your level. Zed Shaw's Learn Programming the Hard Way ( http://learnpythonthehardway.org/index) is a popular resource for concurrently learning python and the basics of programming.

    MIT had open courseware for python about a year ago with a free ebook and videos of lectures.

    Here is the link, though it looks more intro to programming than you want. Good resources though. http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-00-introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-fall-2008/

    Learning Python, 4th Ed., Mark Lutz, O'Reilly Media ~ In my opinion, it is the best book you can get for learning Python. It'd be perfect for you.

    @carlsmith:That one too heavy and too brief,it will take a long time.You can first learnfrom book in wikipedia about python,then byte of python,then solve the python problems and go through the book suggested by carlsmith.I have read that book,you need big time to complete.
