Good Python Tk overview

I'm comming from the background of being primarily a data processing
programmer (Python) and I'd like to do some GUI stuff for a comercial
project but I have quite a bit of time, nothing too complex but it has
to work on Windows98+ OSX and Solaris so I was thinking Tkinter. I was
wondering if there were some sites with a good overview of the whole
Python +Tk shpeal, I've got some code examples and "Programming Python
2nd Edition" but that's more of a learn by example, rather than an
overview of concepts. Anyone have a good recommendation?

An Introduction to Tkinter by Fredrik Lundh is an excellent place to start.
You can find it at: http://www.pythonware.com.library/tkinter/introduction.
There's a link to download the file as a PDF for later viewing.

Thanks for catching that, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed.
