"Games are a great way to engage kids, and Python is a perfect language for them to see immediate results on the screen as they code. Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python should be a hit."

The difference here was an immediate and practical instruction to make my computer do something practical and fun. I like the book so much that after months of trying to read and use the other books I put them down and now concentrate on using this to continue learning to program by using python.
Those with more python\programming experience that want to get a basic handle on graphics might try his book Making Games with Python & PyGame as a better fit starting point.
It is good for beginners, but I think if you already know a little bit about Python then this book will be too basic for you.
