Are there any good physical Python books that are aimed (or easily applied to) developing on Linux?

Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, second edition, by Michael Dawson. It's what I'm using right now and it is easily applied to Linux.

Python Essential Reference by David M. Beazley. It is not Linux specific but it is exactly as its name implies. A compact reference to the language and its libraries. It's not good for learning the language but for when you need to jog your memory or extend your knowledge of the libraries there is nothing better than a good reference book.

Another good book by Michael Dawson is Programming With Python, it's what I'm using in my Fundamentals of Programming class.
