I wrote a pair of articles a while back for Linux Planet on writing
GIMP plug-ins in Python. Although there wasn't space to teach
Python from scratch, I tried to write even for people who don't
have much programming background:

Assuming you have GIMP Python support already installed (do you have
a Filters->Python-fu menu?), most people find Python easier to read
than Script-fu. But Script-fu does have the advantage that there are
lots of scripts available to copy, and you can count on it already
being installed.
