You're not the first person to recommend me this book on this
newsgroup.  Unfortunately, we don't seem to have it in the library at the
university where I work, as otherwise it would be in my hands by now.  I
know you say buy the book, but I can't afford that - perhaps you earn more
than I do?

I have a friend who is a computer programmer (and definitely earns more
than I do ;-)  who recommended that I give python a try.  He is going to
lend me his copy of a book on python on Saturday - Hammond & Robinson,
"Python Programming on Win32".  I don't know whether this has sufficient
info on Tkinter to help, but it's about the only non-online source that I
can get hold of.
