It is a bit dense. And it jumps from basic to advanced pretty quickly.
But it is thorough and so far I've found very few mistakes.

That makes it a *nice* book for me, I only use it as a reference,
I dont normally try reading whole chapters...

My other Tk resources are nearly all based on Tcl/Tk.
The Tcl/Tk in a Nutshell is very useful(covers Tix too), but you do
need to be happy translating Tcl/Tk into Python/Tkinter...

For beginner level Ivor Lanningham's book "Teach Yourself Python
in 24 Hours" has 3 or 4 chapters on Tkinter and a Mandelbrot case
study that pulls it all together.
