If you've followed 7Stud's posts, you'll note that he/she is always
short and mildly to extremely abrupt or rude. Robin Dunn has written
on multiple occasions on the wxPython list about the trouble's they
had organizing the book with the publisher.

While the book does have issues, it is better (in my opinion) than the
only published Tkinter book, although both books are now outdated.
However, I have found that with practice, I can write a fairly complex
GUI front-end with wxPython in only a couple of hours.

As with all programming, if you don't practice, you won't learn.
