Format: Paperback
One reviewer slams this book because it just rehashes the freely available help files and tutorials. That is not a fair assesment as Matthias does a good job of explaining what he is doing and how. The "free" help pages are pretty terse in this regard.
I can't give it 5 stars however because it doesn't take the time to talk about *how* to get your programs to compile in various environments (I use FreeBSD) and that can leave the reader very unsatisfied. There is enough on-line documentation to figure it out, but some pointers in this book would have really enhanced the experience.
Of course, if you aer using the KDE desktop this book is essential. This combined with the book on KDE is a good set for anyone who wants to develop applications for Linux (or FreeBSD).

I am new to Linux programming (I'm a .Net developer) and was a bit frustrated with the online tutorials for Qt and decided to give this book a try. I am very happy with the decision, this book is very well written. I like the style of the author, giving us some practical exercises after each topic, so we can improve the application he develops throughout the book (a "paintbrush"). Now that I understood the basics I can use the Qt documentation to do my own apps.
People who like those huge, "step-by-step" ("click File->Quit to exit the application...") books might be a bit disappointed with this one though, the author assumes that the reader knows some C++ and can figure out some stuff by himself/herself, so be warned. Not that he skips any information needed, but he doesn't repeat the same thing 10x either, so you gotta be a bit "smart" to read this book.

I personally own all three published books on the Qt GUI Toolkit by Trolltech. This one is by far the best of them. It is not a 5 star book, but it will teach you some of the more advanced uses of the Toolkit. It makes for a really great comanion to the Reference guide that comes with the toolkit.

This is not a very good book on programming QT. It will help you get started and since it is like one of the only books written on QT you are kind of stuck. Once I got the hang of QT I never looked at the book again, though. Get your company to buy it, read it through a bit, and then use the API guide and code examples in your QT distribution. The sections on building QT were the most useful to me (windows platform), but that was about it. Otherwise, I would just read the examples from the distribution...

I hesitated to buy this after reading the negative reviews here. I am glad I did. It is exactly what I needed. It touches on the necessary basics of C++, event driven programming and covers how to download and install the Qt environment in the first chapter. The second is Hello World, the next few are guided tours of the major widgets, then some 20+ more chapters cover Qt by topic because it is much more than a GUI toolkit. The style is succinct yet easy to absorb. It took me about two days to read through it carefully. In that brief time now I just use the online Qt help for detail info.
