it does focus on tk
i find the title of this book, and its promise, to be a bit misleading. it focuses on tk with little about tcl specifics in there. i find myself not using this book very often except when i have to do something tricky in tk. i program in tcl every day, but i don't do much tk anymore.
you wont learn tcl/tk from this, but you may pick up some great tk organization and features.
i'd say this book is overpriced, too, so see if you can buy it used.
if you're looking at getting a book to make you an advanced tcl programmer, i'd look elsewhere first.

please note--this is a Tk book.
TCL users look to the Welch or Ousterhout for a good TCL reference.
