"Let's start with the conclusion: if you intend to work with Tkinter, buy this book. If you need to do graphical programming in Python but don't know what tools to use, buy this book. ... The book assumes the reader has a basic knowledge of Python, but requires no knowledge of Tcl or Tk. The first part, only 28 pages, is a quick review of Python, an intro to Tkinter and a sample application."

"Each concept is presented with some explanatory text, some code and a screen shot. The code is on track for teaching you the next thing you need to know, rather than being just a book of sample code. Part of the credit goes to Python itself, where you can write something useful in a few lines, but the author has done a good job of breaking up the material so that a concept can be presented in only a few pages."

"The book ends with a comprehensive index. ... It is well organized, easy to read and offers a great tutorial combined with a comprehensive reference."
