The central third of the book concentrates on Objects and
Object-Oriented Programming.  The final third gives a solid introduction
to Tkinter programming.  Neither of these would have been covered in
Pascal or VB, I should think.

To get a feel for the basic concepts of Python, you should at least
review the first third, but it can be skipped.
