First Sentence
In a visual programming tool such as Delphi, the role of the integrated development environment (IDE) is at times even more important than the programming language. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource Nov. 1 2005
By Joe Hendricks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My copy is already getting dog-eared with use. Very well-written, Mastering Borland Delphi 2005 is another winner in a winning series by the author. For those of us making the transition to .Net with Delphi, the book details many advantages of using vcl.net in that transition. My D2005 IDE setup is much better thanks to the book's tips & tricks for IDE options. The sections/examples on ECO, asp.net, ado.net, refactoring and unit testing I use constantly as references. - Joe Hendricks, SoftwareRunners

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best In Mark Cantu's Delphi Series April 10 2007
By Chuck Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This latest in Marco's Delphi series is a must-have for anyone who is serious about rapid Microsoft Windows systems development. In contrast to most, perhaps all, of the technical books dealing with creative development, this one is very readable, and more to the point immediately useful.

The rich code samples are immediately applicable to today's right-now applications, with background material that is succinct and helpful.

It's still applicable today for one simple reason: Delphi is still the fastest and most reliable way to build robust Windows applications, bar none. The economic impact of this simple fact is why Delphi is still being used today, despite Borland's self-induced problems, and will continue to be used for the same reason for as long as Win32 is around - probably a long, long time indeed.

DISCLAIMER: Borland wanted to do a case study on my company's use of Delphi, even after I told them I thought that their marketing department was brain dead. They compiled and published the case study, but I still believe that their marketing department is brain dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource May 20 2007
By Shyamal A. Perera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Marco Cantu presents another fine in-depth Delphi book. I treat this as more of a reference rather than something you read start-finish. Its over 900 pages long and I recommend having tried Delphi for a while before picking this book up. The downloadable demos are especially helpful. Highly Recommend it.
