Most python book seem to be aimed at non-programmers / beginners, but with a grasp of the basic fundamentals of C++ and programming in general, I think a different sort of book would be more appropriate.
Are they any good books for this situation, or am I getting ahead of myself?
I just grabbed the manual that comes with the reference implementation and skimmed the tutorial. Then I basically went "uh-huh, so that's the if, that's the for, functions are like this, I handle errors like that, and I import modules like so". If you already know how to program, there's nothing particularly interesting about the language, besides maybe the dynamic type system.
