This book gives an amazing introduction to Delphi language and is really well written.The author has large experience with the language and explains everything in a clear, simple, and fun (yes, fun) way.It's hard to find a good and recent book on Delphi. I've tried a few and this one is really good.I read this book (Part 1) in Kindle Cloud reader and it worked really well, but if you plan to buy the three parts of the book, let it be known that the second part is not readable in cloud reader (it's the only Kindle book I have that is incompatible: parts 1 and 3 work, but part 2 doesn't).
The book came in 3 downloadable PDF files and work perfect on my Kindle. The information had been good to have and it reviews and compares some older versions to the features of XE2. I could not find the same for XE3 so this has been a great purchase.
Well, to be fair it is the only Delphi book in years, but that is besides the point. This is a very strong book it covers all the basics of the language both structured and OOP in detail. After reading this book the only thing you will need is experience. The reason I didn't give this book 5 stars, is that while it is very good, and worth every bit of the purchase price and then some, it didn't absolutely knock my socks off, and that is what I reserve 5 stars for.
I bought these books as references for the Delphi Programming Language. I find the text hard to follow in this format. It's not easy to go back and forth in the same way as a printed book. I should have bought the print edition.
Congratulation. A Book with a very professional structure. Clear, direct. I'm sure that will help me in my targets.I bought already the other parts (part 2 and 3).
