I agree that the tuple explanation if ok.  But "Return whether an object is an instance of a class or of a subclass thereof." (3.5) seems wrong.  I believe 'subclass' should be 'superclass'.
    
>>> class C: pass

>>> class Csub(C): pass

>>> isinstance(C(), Csub)
False
>>> isinstance(Csub(), C)
True
