If not, I'll second the recommendation for the pdf. It's not complete, but
it's quite useful and pretty easy to use. Hm, seems to be updated since I
downloaded a copy, guess I'll grab the newest ;-) Hm2, it doubled in size!
The creation dates are
*** FILE tkinter.pdf ***
*** FILE tkinter2.pdf ***
So I guess it could double in 2 years 4 months. I'll have to look into it.
