This is not really the kind of book you're looking for, I'm, afraid, but still it's the best one I've read on Python in general http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032519.do

As a language reference you could use something like that https://gto76.github.io/python-cheatsheet/ or another good book https://doughellmann.com/blog/the-python-3-standard-library-...

The book Fluent Python is a good book that goes beyond the introduction to python books http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032519.do

Here's an interview with the author in 2015 https://talkpython.fm/episodes/show/24/fluent-python

I had prior experience with other programming / scripting languages, and picking Python up felt very natural.

I started with Mark Lutz's Learning Python (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596513986.do) about 10 years ago. In the meanwhile I've been an active contributor to large Python-based open source projects, e.g., Salt (https://github.com/saltstack/salt) which not only that it helped me get feedback from people with a tremendous experience, but also reading through the code taught me good practices and many good ways to solve various problems. A few months ago I started reading Luciano Ramalho's Fluent Python (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032519.do) which is just beautifully written and with a wide variety of topics for a deeper look inside Python internals.

There's Fluent Python from OReilly which is a pretty good follow-on for people who are comfortable with the basics and want to know dig into some more advanced features:

I just went with the "Fluent Python" O'Reilly book.

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032519.do

It's a bit pricey, but I managed to score it on a 50% sale, and I have to say I think it's a very good book for people already fluent in other programming languages.
