Modern colleges have Computer Science departments that utilize modern languages but if you're over 40, you probably learned Pascal in college and are comfortable diving straight into Delphi. On the other hand, if you didn't grow up watching Hee Haw and Little House on the Prairie, you probably need to start with the basics.Most online tutorials are VERY outdated and assume you already know some Pascal. Same with most books. Nick Hodges published a great Delphi book in 2014 that covers advanced topics like unit testing, design patterns, and dependency injection but his book will not teach you Delphi.That brings me to this overpriced book. The first thing I noticed was that it was published in 2005 (eye roll). Then I noticed the reviews were good and one was written in 2013. Furthermore, the reviews here showed the book was for beginners. I struggled with my decision because I wasn't sure if it would apply to the current IDE (XE6) and it's very expensive. After reading it, I'm convinced that it helped. The book is accurate and well written. This book targets people with ZERO programming experience. This book teaches basic programming (very basic) using Delphi. I'm an experienced Software Developer with a Computer Science degree (dated 2010 not 1990) and used the book to quickly familiarize myself with the Delphi IDE and language syntax.
