|Title||The New Delphi 2 Programming Explorer|
|Author||Jeff Duntemann, Jim Mischel, Don Taylor|
|Publisher||The Coriolis Group|
This book is truly unique.
It is written by three great authors in a way that is perfect for Delphi: first do it, and then find out why (or how) it works.
That's exactly the way Jeff and Jim used to write the first 18 chapters of this book (4 more than in the previous edition).
Jim starts off by doing something with Delphi, and then (in the next chapter) Jeff explains the techniques behind it in his own unique style.
The topics range from beginning to intermediate, and while the book is written in a very pleasant and easy way, the authors are never afraid to give you some additional technical information.
Just when you think the book's over, Ace Breakpoint's Database adventure starts, by Don Taylor, describing a Delphi database design & implementation project in the form of a detective story.
