Learn python the hard way is a great suggestion. I learned with Think
Python: how to think like a computer scientist (
http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/ ). Totally free of cost.
I like the book since it offers a gentle introduction to major topics in
computer science. If you're already comfortable programming in another
language then LPTHW would probably be better to get you used to python
As a general tip: solve project Euler problems (
http://projecteuler.net/) to get used to "thinking" in the language
you are trying to learn. Start
with an implementation using a language you're already familiar with then
solve again using python. Some problems are really easy while many require
a firm understanding of algorithms and data types.
