Python comes with Tkinter which is an interface to the Tk toolkit. It is cross platform.

You can also get the win32com and pythonwin distribution. There is a useful introductory article here which may be taken from the book you were looking at. From what I can tell though pythonwin is limited because it''s difficult to integrate resources that are used by MFC - not impossible - but difficult.

You can access the win 32 api by importing win32api (of all things!). The functions closely mirror those of the C API.

Oluseyi - You''ve redeemed yourself. Thanks for pointing that out as I''ve had a bit of a blindspot for wxPython. Having now downloaded it though it looks good. PyCrust and PyShell are worth the price of entry alone!
