I'm learning Python 2.7 and 3. It's very easy to understand (all pseudo-code and whatnot).
If you're having trouble with Python then I'd recommend "Programming in Python" or "Dive Into Python" for reference, NOT to learn from as they're meant for intermediate/advanced programmers. If you want a beginner book then search for "Learn Python the Hard Way" or "A Byte of Python". If you're super new to programming, then I'd also recommend "The Non-Programmer's Tutorial to Python".
I'm personally reading "Learn Python the Hard Way 2nd Edition" by Shaw and "Learning to Program Using Python 3" by Jackson as a beginner tool. Both were recommended to me by forum members for users with non-programming backgrounds.
I know Objective-C I'm sure I could use python.
Python is Really Easy to Learn.
