Frederick Lundh is, if anyone is.

Coming to Python from a Tcl/Tk background, I find Tkinter to be pretty 
compatible with what I know about Tk: usually it's just a matter of 
figuring out how to translate the code. Having a Tk background from Tcl 
is also helpful in using some of the more advanced Tcl/Tk stuff that has 
been wrapped in Python, but isn't much documented or widely used, such 
as BWidgets.

 From that standpoint, the Welch book is a useful resource, though 
probably not essential.
