BUT... the book is basically un-usable because of the lousy binding! After only light use over a couple of weeks, the darn thing is falling apart! Pages are dropping out of it. I pride myself on taking good care of my books, especially ones that I plan on using for a long time. None the less, this one is fragile, preventing me from recommending it to anyone.
As for the binding... The people at Amazon were amazing. They were kind and generous enough to replace my crumbling copy. Mr. Welch, the author, then also complained to the publisher on behalf of all the readers, and I understand that they will be offering a lay-flat binding in the November printing! My hats off to everyone. I'm deeply impressed.
On another note, can we encourage the publisher to release this book in a hard cover?!?!? I'm getting ready to buy another copy of this book because the pages are falling out!!! :-)
After you've studied a couple 3GL system language's and played with Perl & scripting. Understand computing concepts, (Tcl probably isn't too good for random beginners or people who just don't like the paradigm). If you're into computing and want.., then go for this one.
When you are the only person on campus doing-knowing any Tcl / Tk, you had better get the right book.
I mailled Brent with a question and sure enough he got back to me. (try that with Lara Lemay).
So for such a good book and service - 5 star award.
I agree that the explanations at times are confusing, but at least Welch addresses many topics. Other books I found to be too limited in scope, contained too few examples and lacked depth and detail on Tcl Tk commands. Welch's is not a perfect book, but I think it is the best in the market for my needs.
