[SciPy-User] getting started with arrays and matplotlib

I recently got Hans Petter Langtangen's "A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python." I thought that it was a good choice.  It's more of a text book than a reference, but is well written. He has another book called "Python Scripting for Computational Science," which might also serve.

Somewhat an advanced data analysis book, particularly if you are
interested in error analysis, and not so surprisingly powered by

A Student's Guide to Data and Error Analysis
