I don't know.  You may prefer a less <insert-suitable-adjective>
introduction such as Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum Days, or the Little
Schemer/Seasoned Schemer combination is also very popular.  Then you could
probably tackle HTDP without serious problems, if you can't already.  I
think for the sort of problem you describe, HTUS is a more useful book, but
it's incomplete and probably won't teach enough Scheme if you don't know it

Best is relative.  As I said before: I'm biased.  Where python probably has
the edge over us at the moment is in the number of programmers and the sheer
size of support programmers, but I think we have at least as many libraries. 
I should get off my backside and package the useful I've developed.
