Can anyone recommend a great TCL TK book for people totally new to the language?

I searched Barnes & Noble and found 16 titles but I am not familiar with them, hence this thread.

Could anyone recommend a book that is exceptionally good for beginners?

I am pretty fond of "Practical Programming in Tcl/Tk' by Brent Welch, but honestly, I think you can find all you really need at


Also, depending on what you are doing, "Exploring Expect" by Don Libes is pretty good. The book starts with some Tcl basics and is just enough to really get you hooked.

Hope that helps :-)
