Comments about oreilly Head First Python, 2nd Edition:

I found this book an intuitive guide to the Python programming language. Great for beginners and covering multiple aspects of the programming language, although I would recommend also looking into Mark Lutz, "Programming Python," and, "Learning Python," for a more comprehensive guide.
