I've been trying out python codes looking at the python tutorials at python.org. I've been getting a better idea of it now and the tutorials are very good at teaching practical programming. However, I also want to apply for Python jobs so what a little bit of theoritical information on the languages and little better concepts on the language. So I would like read some book along with following the tutorial. Can you suggest me which one to buy?

P.S. I'm a beginner at Python programming but I'm not new to Programming. Have knowledge of C and Java

There are many books offered free online.
You can find Game programming related books at this link:

There is also a good book for beginners called "A Byte of Python"

Also try Python Programming for absolute beginners by Mike Dawson, a veteran game developer. Don't know if the book is available free online. The hard copy comes with a disk with useful codes.

Along with any of these books, I suggest you go through some video tutorials available on Youtube.

There are many resources for learning on this site itself.

So Good Luck with Python
