If ‘learning by doing’ is your thing, then building your own game will prove to be a rewarding experience! In this book, Al Sweigart assumes no prior knowledge of Python and takes you all the way to building your own game. Given that the book is geared towards game development, the book may move a little quickly for a total beginner. Later on in this article, I mention a similar book of his where he assumes a prior knowledge of Python. If you feel you are have a good grasp of the language, then his other book might be a better resource for you.
  * IntroductoryBooks (gentle overviews of the language)
  * AdvancedBooks (for when you don't want gentle)
  * ReferenceBooks (much information in a small space)
  * Specific applications:

     * GuiBooks
     * JythonBooks
