I'm kinda a moron too and I've tried learning Python from many references.
But the books are not suitable for me, as I need the kind of "XXX
guide for Idiot".

But finally I found one (it's used as university course book actually)
that feels "right" to me:
"Practical Programming - An Introduction to Computer Science Using Python"
by Jennifer Campbell, Paul Gries, Jason Montojo, Greg Wilson


A review:

Good luck to you ^^
