I've read O'Reilly's "Learning Python" and highly recommend it, both for learning the language and a language resource.. though I wouldn't call it "fun".

I've also got "Game Programming with Python", which I've lightly skimmed for info, and it seems pretty good. It touches on some of the more basic aspects of game programming, as well as more advanced subjects like embedding the Python interpreter in a C++ program, or extending Python with C++. It also discusses some of the Python game libraries out there.

sweet!! i'll have to get it!! i have c++ for the absolute begginner and at least 3 or 4 other c++ books and i have to admit if i didnt have the absolute beginner book i dont think that i'd be trying to learn to program although the other books are good for refferences and further detail.

Very fun. Great reviews. And you make games with graphics. Plus, same author of the well-reviewed Beginning C++ Game Programming.

Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner


Yeah I got that book just for the pizza game not to mention the astrocrash game is pretty awesome too.
It's the easiest python book I've seen by far but it still starts out pretty slow in the first couple of chapters so if you get bored skip ahead to where the games and the fun starts!

p.s. note I used this book on my mac so although the book doesn't mention anything about it being crossplatform it's pretty easy to do.
