I am planning on ordering a couple books--one on Plone specifically and something that would be a good basic intro to Python, and was wondering if anyone here in the Sitepoint community might have some recommendations for a good starting point?
I moved to a rather rural area from the city just over a year ago and no longer have the luxury of running down to Barnes & Noble to thumb through books before buying as I used to. (Seriously, the nearest decent bookstore in nearly an hour's drive away...) I see there are only a handful on Plone, but quite a few on Python, and before I order online, some informed opinions would be greatly appreciated.
I have basic PHP skills, and know my way around quite a few CMS and so forth...but not a programmer by any means. I'm decent with scripting and can pick up stuff fairly quick, and have played around with REBOL, BASIC, VBScript and know enough MySQL to look for mistakes in code...so I don't need an absolute beginner's guide (though I'm not too proud to start out with one), but advanced books might be more than I am ready for just yet.
Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
