Format: Paperback
There haven't been all that many new Delphi books in recent years so it was pleasant to find this one. This book appears to be aimed at new Delphi programmers and it does a pretty good job of bringing them up to speed. Advanced Delphi programmers will probably not find a great many items of interest, but they might find a few. I've have used all ten versions of Delphi (and most versions of Turbo Pascal) and have about one hundred books in my library on Delphi. So, while most of the information was not new to me, I did run across one or two little gems I had not seen before.

I'm glad I bought it.

If you're already an advanced Delphi programmer, you're not likely to find a whole lot "groundbreaking" in here. But if you're new to Delphi, or just want to brush up on a few areas you may have missed, this is a good book.

At first glance, the title would lead one to believe that this book will reveal an abundance of knowledge pertaining to the latest version of Delphi called Delphi 2006.

The only revelation that becomes quite apparent, within first two chapters, is that of the title.

The book contains a synopsis of previous versions of Delphi, from Delphi 1 to the present. The silence is finally interupted in the last few chapters when a miniscule amount of pertinent information is forthcoming about .net funtionality and Delphi 2006.

If you are an ardent Delphi programmer, SAVE your money.

I know Assembly, C, and C++, and until I read this book, did not know any Pascal. I got the book mainly to help me with Borland Developer Studio 2006. The last version I purchased from Borland was C++ Builder 4.0 and I wanted (in hard copy so I could read away from the computer) to understand the differences between the compilers. The book is written mostly for Pascal programmers, but it does a decent job covering C++.

A lot of the programs, utilities, and examples I see from various sources are in Pascal. I decided now was as good a time to learn a new language as any. For my situation, this book was the perfect choice. I could read the C++ code then use that understanding to help me learn Pascal, all while becoming familiar with Borland's new environment.

The book itself is fairly well written, though many parts are difficult to follow. It is not the right book for a new programmer - but compared to other programming books, it is a gem. If you buy this book, expect to spend time tweaking some of the examples to make them work, and don't expect to be told everything you need to complete the lessons. With that said, there was nothing I could not make work or figure out with a little thinking - which actually turned out to be a good thing because I learned quite a bit. There are also many good Windows programming techniques and ideas, which are quite valuable themselves.

My overall impression? All serious Borland BSD users should have this book on their shelf.

I have several years of experience with C/C++ using MFC and Borland C++ Builder, and I have long been planning to expand my knowledge to Delphi. To this end, I found this book extremely well written with plain, well orgnized and easy to understand English. Albeit English is not my native language but it took me just 3 hours to finish reading almost half of the book (near 300 pages) with much enjoyment and I feel I already have a good jump start with Delphi. Of course, I guess the presented material might appear too fundamental to Delphi masters, but it is definetly a good book for someone who already have some experience with C/C++ but want to learn Delphi.

Some have complained .NET is only covered at the miminum. But to me this is acceptable since I can find information from other books once I get a hold of Delphi in general. In short, this is a very good book and I would happily rate it with 5 starts.

Continued Comments by the same reviwer after one year:
Delphi in a Nutshell by Ray Lischer, would be a very good subsequent reading after this book.

Also, this book doesn't touch on Web Services, XML programming, Refactroing, and Unit Testing. These stuff can be found from CodeGear website --- they have very good Webinar series on the topics that would compliment this book.

Short notation: This book is great - and here is why

Its starts with the most simple programming without windows - it "aclimitize" your eyes to delphi code. Like me who havn't programmed for a while I love the way we clean out everything uninportant. You don't get a bucket full of paint over you at the first page, we go with easy steps to all the details. What a variable is and how it can be declared. All the container types there can be... Then we advance slowley and I simpley love the book. I borrowed it from a friend and fell in love with the way it was done! -- Now you just not stop with delphi - the book lets your feet get wet in C++ too!!
Also he mention how math formulas can be delcared inside const variables can be declared, and its so neat!

at the end of the book we shure get complicated - and for me who wants to get into the hard stuff - I can ashure that this fellow will have it noted as well used later on..

This book get Many stars !!! We love you !!!

at the same time - this is said - I wish that a math book in the same way could be published - accually I would recomend that to happend!
