Ray has written an excellent desktop reference for Delphi. I really liked the explanation of the SysUtils unit. I found that there were functions in there that I had written myself, if I had only known I would have saved myself some time. The Language reference with the Tips and Tricks is excellent, helps make more sense of the sometimes archaic online help. My only complaint is that this is the ONLY Delphi book published by O’Reilly, I would love to see a Learning, Programming, or Mastering book!Was this review helpful?

A Must Have!
Everyone who develops in Delphi loves it. (I've never met an exception to this rule!) I've worked with Delphi since version 1 and read a lot of books along the way. Certain names stand out: Cantu, Jensen, Teixeira & Pacheco, Konopka. But if Ray Lischner wrote it, you owe it to yourself to read it! I believe that you don't REALLY know Delphi until you've read this book. (Yes, I know the bulk of it is reference... READ IT!) The early chapters give powerful insight into Delphi that you just can't get anywhere else.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

'Delphi in a Nutshell' isn't just another ordinary Delphi book. Once again Ray has manage to take on topics that are unique and not covered in any detail if at all by other authors. The chapters on RTTI and the Delphi object model alone are well worth the price. This goes onto my short list of 'must have' Delphi books for any serious program (For the record they are 'Secrets of Delphi 2' & 'Hidden Paths of Delphi 3' by Lischner, 'Delphi 5 Developer's Guide' Teixeira & Pacheco, 'Delphi Developers Handbook' Cantu and now 'Delphi in a Nutshell'). Good work Ray.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
