I want to report that this book is a good introduction to the QT toolkit
and to the use of Blackadder. I find both them to be good and useful,
and I am still studying both, as the subject matter is somewhat difficult
for me and it requires a lot of work.
Actually, the book GUI Programming with Python and Using the QT Toolkit,

toolkit for Python. This is a very difficult area for me, and I am sure it
will require quite some time and effort.
The book goes well with the BlackAdder IDE and GUI designer, which I have

the topics. Not for the faint of heart, however, as the subject matter is
