The book by Mark Ramm, etc. gets really mixed reviews at Amazon.
I personally found Mark's TG book to be a great read, even though it
contains many typos. It'll give you a good understanding of how
TurboGears is put together, and the components used (kid, SQLObject,
CherryPy) in the book will be supported for a long time.
However, TurboGears 1.1 is coming out soon, which replaces a lot of
the default components: kid->genshi, SQLObject->SQLAlchemy,
TG Widgets->ToscaWidgets. For someone wanting to learn TurboGears,
I highly recommend diving into the 1.1 stack (which can already used
in any 1.0 application already).
There are a couple of SQLAlchemy books that are supposed to hit the
shelves next month. One by Mark Ramm and one of the SQLAlchemy
developers, and an O'Reilly one (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596516147/
