I am from India,Asia...

I am searching for books on python... to learn it properly and usefully...
( afterall not every thing is possible from the associated documentation & tutorials, though they are very elaborate)

Can my Indian friends tell me names of some books on Python which are published as students edition/eastern economy edition...

For you know 40-50 $ is not seeming economical for me...

Have you tried sources on the internet?
Meanwhile, I'm moving this to Programming Forum.

I have the Python 2.5,
The help added in it is quite elaborate: but i badly want some hard copy:
for without a hard copy it becomes difficult for quick references...

for i am not always on the laptop...

Dive Into Python is a book you can easily get.
I used it to learn.. it's very comprehensive

"Dive into Python" is good if you are already knowledgeable programmer. Many people miss that.

If you are just beginner in programming, http://learnpython.pbwiki.com/HowToStart#FirstPythonBook has 5 better (IMHO) books.

why not learn it from the creator of Python himself?
here (http://docs.python.org/tut/)...also check out the various documents on Python doc site. That's all you will need for now.
