Hi!

I have read both of those books and If you are a beginner then Mastering Delphi is the one for you, but Delphi5 Developers guide is extremly good, but not for beginners! There are lot of examples in both of the books and I will still recommend you to read the Mastering book first then get on to Developers guide!

Good Luck!

I''ve also read the Delphi5 book, and I have to agree it does include some advanced stuff. Pretty well written. Comes with 5 or 6 (essential) chapters on cd as well (if someone knows how to print them - they are pdf files, but the printer button has been disabled?). Dunno about Mastering Delphi 5 - sorry.

Another topic, anyone read the Isometric Game Programming ? Is it any good, and is it easy to convert to delphi? If you exclude the directX primer stuff, is it still worth the bucks???

How about any of the other books, Programming Gems 1 and 2, are they useful for a Delphi only-user or can you just as well surf the web for the info???


Cheers folks

Hi,

The Delphi 5 Developer''s Guide book is indeed very well written and certainly would be worth your while getting. I haven''t read the other book though so I don''t know whether it''s any good.

On the subject of the chapters on the CD, if you go to the link found in the introduction of the book you''ll find a printable version of the .pdf file to download :-D
