The OpenCV Python API is actually pretty good. I've been compiling and using the latest stuff off of master for the past couple years and when I took Computer Vision Fall 2013 at GMU.

However, I don't think that much of it is generally useful without a basic understanding of CV. The documentation is pretty good[0], but it will be hard to apply them without understanding the tradeoffs.

The CV courses I've taken focused a lot on lecture slides and handouts rather than a comprehensive textbook (although I've heard good things about Programming Computer Vision with Python[1] as an introductory text).
