Hi i'm currently learning python with learningpythonthehardway.org and its going pretty well. But sometimes it could be a little more explanatory.
So does anybody know a nice guide to python?

@Scribe That's not very helpful, but clever none the less.

@Mard0 The definitive source is the online python documentation, but the best guide I've gone through and the one I'm using to learn Python myself is Dive into Python by Mark Pilgrim. I use python 3 here's the link for the Python3 version of the book.

Works through in an intuitive way, I was taught using this tutorial. Also, teaches the pygame amd graphics modules.

I'm using Learn Python the Hard Way right now and it's pretty good but if it's not for you search for "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" and see if that helps. I like both but I'm still sticking with LPTHW for now.

YMMV...
