Allen -

Greetings! As a long time java developer with an interest in broadening my skills how would you recommend I go about picking up some solid python skills? Is there a particular book or site you would recommend where a seasoned developer wouldn't be board but would be challenged yet gain a solid understanding of the language?

Thanks in advance!
