Help w/ book for Tcl/Tk

I would like to learn Tcl and Tk and have found 2 books on the
subject in my local bookstore.

Practical Programming in Tcl and Tk
   by Brent B. Welch

Tcl and the Tk Toolkit
   by John K. Ousterhout

Can anyone tell me which book is better for someone who already
has some experience with C and shell programming?  Or is there
another book that is better than both of these?

Thanks in advance for you advice.

I got the Brent's book a couple of days ago and it seems to be pretty good reading.  You get a floppy to go with it and the book is full of examples ( included
on the floppy ).
                Enjoy.          Jiri.

John K. Oosterhout is the creator of Tcl/Tk, his book is to Tcl/Tk what
Kernigan and Ritchie is to C, so you should definitely have it.
