You don't say what Python release your book covers, but the first thing to know is that Python 3 has many incompatibilities with Python 2.  I don't think any book that covers Python 2 is useful for a new Python programmer using Python 3.

You also don't say whether you're a beginning programmer or a veteran wanting to learn a new language.  This might affect your book choice, as some are directed more toward beginning programmers.

One good choice is Dive Into Python, available for free on-line (google "dive into python 3").  I'm sure other folks could suggest additional suitable Python 3 books.
