|Title||Teach Yourself Delphi in 21 Days|
|Author||Andrew J. Wozniewicz, Namir Shammas & Tom Campbell (bonus)|
This book is one of the "later" books on Delphi, so the authors could spend more time on the quality of the contents.
Mostly they've succeeded, although some 'typing bugs' remain that are especially annoying in the code examples that won't compile in the chapters by Shammas.
The book is intended for the beginner-level programmer, although the last few (DDE/OLE) chapters are of an intermediate to advanced level.
For most chapters, no prior programming, Windows or OO experience is assumed nor required.
The sole emphasis of the book is on Delphi and the underlying programming language: Object Pascal.
There's only limited mention of the database aspects of Delphi, and none regarding topics like Client/Server or ReportSmith.
