Python in a Nutshell, O'Reilly Media, written by Alex Martelli http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596100469/

Definitely recommended for learning Python fast&practically. It's the most comprehensive and useful Python reference book for programmers I've ever encountered.

Thanks for the recommendation, serialx; this (along with Essential Reference) is contending to be my next purchase. :)
