I have spent the last few months learning how to program in python and I am looking for a good book or tutorial that goes over how to use pygame. Because I am new to game programming and programming in general I would apreciate it if recomendations are for a complete beginner or at least not expecting a vast knowledge of game programming beforehand.

Speaking as a beginner in Python and programming I found this tutorial series to be really helpful:

http://lorenzod8n.wordpress.com/?s=pygame+tutorial

Since you probably have already worked through many of the Python tutorials this series should be a fast way to get acquainted with pygame. It is pretty simple I think in content but very clear in its presentation. It also has lots of exercises (which I love).

Beyond that the pygame docs and the mailing list are where it's at I think. Anyone want to start a new Python game club? ;)

Anyway, I'm not a programmer, and first post to GD, but I really liked Lorenzo's tutorial so I wanted to give the link. Hope it's helpful.
