    I enjoyed reading Head First Python. It's well organised, well written and not at all dry. I recommend it.

    It covers web back-end, Android and Google App Engine, too.

    Looks good, will be going through Amazon and am confused on the products two prices on apparently the same book. Sigh. And mildly annoyed that a new one is coming out in January...
