	A pity most python books are so terrible.  The O'Reilly ones
were miserable, and Programming Python's only saving grace was
Appendix E.  Rip that out and re-bind it.  It's a better book without
all those hideous chapters in the way.

	The New Riders Python Reference is great, but I direct most
new python programmers to http://python.org/doc/Intros.html and let
them work the rest out from there.
