|Title||Delphi 2 Developer's Guide|
|Author||Xavier Pacheco & Steve Teixeira|
Like Charlie Calvert (author of Delphi 2 Unleashed), Steve Teixeira and Xavier Pacheco were part of the development team that created Delphi.
They could write down their own first-hand experience with Delphi.
The book consists of three parts: Concepts (learning you the basic concepts of Delphi 2, ObjectPascal, Win32 and the VCL), Real-World Building Blocks (a number of small but very powerful little programs) and Real-World Applications (six bigger actual applications - using every part of Delphi you can imagine).
The book has grown a lot since the previous - bestselling - edition!
If you read only one book in addition to the Delphi manuals, then let this be the one; it contains just about everything you need to become a professional Delphi programmer!
