There are many many general Python programming text books available, although relatively few are specifically directed towards scientifc programming and data analysis. For general python programming, I like the O'Reilly books:

Introducing Python : modern computing in simple packages ISBN: 9781449361198 (e-book) by Bill Lubanovic (O'Reilly)

Learning Python by Mark Lutz , David Ascher (O'Reilly)

Specific titles that cover using Python for scientific computing include:

Numpy Beginner's Guide ISBN: 9781785288838 (e-book) - Second Edition by Ivan Idris (Packt Publishing Ltd)   

Effective computation in physics : Field Guide to Effective Research with Python by Anthony Scopatz and Kathryn Huff (O'Reilly)
