Python comes with a comprehensive tutorial in HTML format written by Guido van Rossum. This can be completed in two to three hours and is worth reading at this point. If you’ve installed Python, the master documentation index can be found on your hard disk at C:\Program Files\Python\Doc\index.html. We also recommend O’Reilly’s books Learning Python by Mark Lutz and David Ascher and Programming Python by Mark Lutz.
