This review is from: The Python Standard Library by Example (Developer's Library) (Paperback)
For the generalist this is the one python book you should own. Where Perl has the CPAN, python has its standard library. Get familiar with this book and you'll save yourself a lot of time. Lot's of things you'll need to do on a regular basis are a part of the standard library for exactly that reason. Mr Hellman has done an awesome job of writing a succinct little example for just about every corner of it's standard library.
This book reminds me of other "Magnum Opus" type works like PC Intern, Programming Perl and the Stevens TCP/IP books and like those books it's a reference book that will stand good for many years.
