I also have 'Head first python' copy but I never used it yet. The book doesn't make me feel to read, but Dan's book is much like a novel. The font is so attractive and no doubt the content, I just glanced through it the topic heading themselves bring me the confident that this is the book every python developer should have.
Learn basics online , switch to the Dan's Python novel it's a beauty. I also follow his youtube channel , every content is worth watching.
I am grateful to him :)
Dislikes: except for a few chapters, there is hardly any value addition if you are an experienced python developer.
Overall: Fluent Python should be your choice if you have time to spent and able to grasp the steep learning curve. For beginners, python tricks is good book but for beginners only.

The main tag line of the title "Python Tricks - the Book" I think does it a dis-service (although I recognise the link with Dan's web RealPython and the tips and tricks email series). That title suggests a collection of disjointed tips and/or sometimes pointless tricks with the language. It is far from that. Instead you get a well thought out and substantial walk through many of the more advanced aspects of the language. But it is not a dry tome in the academic style. All is explained in an informal but thorough and lucid style, and even hitherto obscure topics like decorators and lexical closures now make sense to me. Also included is a link to additional (free) online resources to reinforce the book's contents. It is a good read for expanding your horizons, and one that will remain useful as a reference work when implementing some of the techniques with which you are not overly familiar.
Not one for total beginners, but if like me you find yourself at the stage of, "Well, I think I'm now OK with the basics of python, but where do I go next?" - this is the book for you. And at the price of the Kindle version , an absolute bargain.
Easy to read in chunks, and includes some useful insights into Python.
