Scrapping the programming aside, let's check out the O'Reilly books:
Programming Perl: Even in it's second edition, you could program almost anything, including Internet interactivity. It told you everything, and was a traditional manual.
Programming Python: Gives you an extended diatribe on why Python is good for the body, the mind, and the soul, tells you the basics, and leaves everything else to another book altogether... which is kinda disappointing. In effect, it's C++ programming in a different format.
If I would compare the two, I would say the Python book is equal to Learning Perl (the Llama book) than the Camel book.
I'm willing to sell my copy the Python book for half price!!!
