An optimization book would be great. Many people who use Python have rich programming backgrounds and can transfer universal optimization concepts like caching and pooling to Python. However I believe for a significant number of Python users that Python is a first or at most second language. This group doesn't have the benefit of lessons learned after years of programming in C, Java, or Perl to apply to optimizing Python programs.
