With such an acclaimed list of contributors that include Bob Swart (aka Dr. Bob) and Ray Konopka, its little wonder that Delphi 6 Developers Guide
oozes knowledge and insight from cover to cover. Make no mistake, this is not one for the faint-hearted. If you are just starting out along the development road, then you may well do better to pass this volume by for now. However, if you are looking to step up your skills to get to grips with the advanced end of Delphi, then this book will take you a long way to where you want to be.
Ably demonstrating their vast wealth of experience, the authors help you to discover a treasure chest of skills and techniques that make the very best use of Delphi 6. Although some information is repeated from previous editions in the series, preference is given to providing in-depth coverage of the many new features, including developing CLX components, interfacing with COM+, and creating e-business solutions by writing SOAP-based Web Services. However, dont worry too much about what has been left out of this edition as the entire text of Delphi 5 Developers Guide is included on the CD-ROM.
Developed and enhanced as it has been over the years, this latest edition to the Delphi Developers Guide series is the best yet. If you would prefer a gentler learning curve into the upper echelons as a Delphi developer, then Marco Cantus superb Mastering Delphi 6 may be preferred, but if youre confident you can stay the distance, then you will not do better than this complete and authoritative guide. --Peter Lunn, amazon.co.uk
