This is the introductory document for Python, prepared by the language developers. It tells beginning and experienced programmers what they need to know to start using Python quickly. It remains indispensible; I keep a copy on my desk along with a single-page list of the functions I use most frequently.
I don't rate this document quite as highly as the language, but it is superior to most introductions by language developers. It is refreshingly brief, to the point, without obvious ideology or attempts to be "cute". Read this introduction before downloading or buying a book on Python.
