A really easy-to-read tutorial, with nice fonts and colors, is (at a
mirror site):

But really, you just need to read Appendix B of "The Ruby Way". It has a
great one-to-one table. Then, just learn list comprehensions, the best
of Python.

Also, learn the "itertools" module, for functional programming.

If you have time, install "IPython", a really, really great interactive
shell. The regular shell is better than irb (as long as you have
working) but IPython is so incredibly productive that it's worth the
to install.

And if you want slick docs, use epydoc, rather than the standard pydoc.
mark-up syntax is similar to JavaDoc.
