[Book review] Tkinter GUI Application Development HOTSHOT

Hi guys. You might have noticed that I am not so active. The reason is that I am developing a couple of my projects as a hobby. Due to that I didn’t have a lot of time to blog. Nevertheless I will continue to write interesting posts once or twice a week. So what this post is about? Well recently I was contacted by Packt Publishers to write a book review. The book was “Tkinter GUI Application Development HOTSHOT” and is recently published. As you probably know that I am not that much proefficient in GUIs and prefer CLIs so this book gave me a good chance to brush up my skills on GUI development. Here is a quick summary for those who want to get a quick overview.

Why I picked it up? It was given to me for the purpose of writing a book review and secondly it gave me a chance to brush up my skills a little.
What do I rate it? 4⁄5
I would give it to: Those who have a moderate Python knowledge and are currently starting GUI development in Tkinter.
How was the writing style? I really liked it. It was an interesting read.
What is the book link? Here you go
Full review:

So now its time for the full review. I have done GUI programming in Python using wxPython and PyQt in the past so I had the concept of how it is done. However this was going to be my first “practicle” encounter with Tkinter. English is not the authors first language so you may experience some gramatical mistakes but nevertheless he did a great job.

The book is not divided in chapters but rather in projects.
