1.0 out of 5 stars
A very deceiving book, Sep 7 2001
Having read excellent John Wiley books in the past, I had great expectations from Ready-to-Run Delphi 3.0 Algorithms. Unfortunately, this book is far from being a good book. First of all, the author, Rod Stephens, is not a Delphi programmer. He merely ported, or more precisely attempted to port, one of his previous Visual Basic books to Delphi. Several Delphi code listings contain code that is... Visual Basic code!
Furthermore, the title is totally inappropriate: none of the supplied code is "ready-to-run." In part because it contains too many errors, but more importantly because the sample code is too academic to be really useful in a real life application.
Do not waste your money on this title.
