***** Delphi 3 Programming for Dummies by Neil Rubenking. IDG Books, published 6-22-97, Check Amazon.com's current price and, optionally, order this book.. This is a "must have" for all Delphi programmers. Far more substance than most of the "Dummies" series. Delphi Programming For Dummies is a surprisingly concise, readable, well-organized, and useful overview of Delphi. Each chapter has "Helpful Tips" that alone are well worth the low price of the book. Novice to Intermediate

**** Teach Yourself Delphi in 21 Days by Andrew Wozniewicz, Sams Publishing, published 5-1-95, Check Amazon.com.'s current price and, optionally, order this book. Great for the novice programmer. It has a useful question-and-answer section at the end of each chapter. As a beginner's book it gets bogged down in the second half with more advanced issues, but the first half is perhaps the best foundation for learning Delphi. Novice to Intermediate

*** Teach Yourself Database Programming with Delphi in 21 Days by Nathan and Ori Gurewich, Bk&Cd-Rom Edition, Sams Publishing, published 9-1-95, Check Amazon.com's current price and, optionally, order this book.. Easy to read question-and-answer format. Good focus on database programming, a subject that is short-changed in most other books. Not much here for the advanced database programmer, but great for getting those new to Delphi up to speed. Novice to Intermediate

*** Delphi 4 Developer's Guide by Xavier Pacheco and Steve Teixeira, Bk&Cd-Rom Edition, Sams Publishing, published 8-5-98 Check Amazon.com's current price and, optionally, order this book.. Useful guide to developing applications using Delphi. Many in-depth discussions. Intermediate to Advanced

Good overview of Delphi. Solid reference for the Delphi developer. Includes sections on database tools, client/server applications, and multi-user databases.

** Charlie Calvert's Delphi Programming Unleashed by Charles Calvert, Charlie Calvert, Book&CD Rom Edition, Sams Publishing, published 11-98, Check Amazon.com's current price and, optionally, order this book. Large reference for the intermediate Delphi programmer. Plan to use this as a reference, not a tutorial. Intermediate to Advanced

** Delphi by Example by Blake Watson, 2nd Edition, Que Corp, published 5-96, Check Amazon.com's current price and, optionally, order this book.
