This is an excellent guide to Delphi 4 programming by two authors who know what they are talking about. The writing is clear and authoritative with plenty of examples. I have used it as a reference over and over again and am glad to have purchased it. Since this book is no longer in print and must be purchased used, be sure to purchase a copy that has the accompanying CD. Although the book is large (1185 pages), several chapters are on CD only. The CD also contains all the source code for the examples in the book.

This book covers many very important areas of Delphi programming. Book starts with Main Window class, variables, arrays, etc., covering many Pascal basics, etc, then it covers some API, Messaging basics, DLLs and COM basics (extremely boring examples) on less the 100 pages, the ActiveX on les than only 70 pages, Database development basics again, very basics of Internet programming, and many other like this.
I have to admit that book is written *nicely* and has attractive and easy explanations, which makes the reader understand everything. I wanted to point out that this book is excellent for a beginner who wants to know wide range of elementary of Delphi. It leaves you an impression that you are good and that you know the stuff now. Which is partially a true - you will perhaps understand all that is written - but that's not all, there is much more behind that.
Therefore don't expect that you will find the real stuff, real tricks, and solutions to real problems. This is *not* a book that you'll need while working on a real project! - If you know all basics then you don't need this book - except you have forgotten some of them.
I was developing some COMs, DLLs, and this book didn't help me at all. I also was reading articles in various Delphi magazines, some of them written by Steve, and there is always the same issue: all examples are just superficial (give you only a scheme how to construct the code). Everything works if you just copy an example, but the author leaves you at that point. No further explanations, no details on why is solution like that. If you go on developing, you will find yourself asking numerous questions: how to do this and that, why this crashes, why I got null in this callback, and many other serious questions. This is why I said that this is only a *basics* book. It leaves you an impression that you understood everything mentioned in chapter and that you know the stuff now - but you don't.
Finally, 4 stars is for the certainly the *best* book that nicely introduces huge capabilities of Delphi (I have read many other books: Mastering Delphi, Unleashed, and similar books that cover all Delphi). *But*, if I had to rate how this book is useful for real life programming problems it would be *1 star* only. You will need to buy some other book for COM, WEB programming, etc., because, one more time, examples are too simple.
Author leaves the web site and email to ask or to send comment about the book, but don't bother - Steve doesn't read that. At least the site seems to have some code fixes.
I have seen other versions of this book for Delphi 5 and 6, some of things were fixed, but it is still written in the same manner.

I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand it does provide a lot of material(ActiveX, OpenTools, MIDAS) that doesn't seem to be concentrated in any single book. On the other hand, the book is not well thought out, the writing is dreadful, and a good chunk of the material is rehashed from the book that comes with the product.
If you want to buy just one Delphi book, and need to know about a lot of different topics, this *might* be the one for you. But don't use this book to learn Object Pascal. (Use the Delphi 5 help file and/or Ray Lischner's "Delphi in a Nutshell".) Don't rely on it for basic Win32 concepts. (There are many C-oriented books on this subject, and reading them with a Pascal eye is good practice.) Do buy this book if you want to explore a lot of different Delphi topics.
A note on the text. Out of 37 chapters and appendixes, 13 are supplied only as PDF files on the CD/ROM! On the other hand, many, many source code examples (I haven't the heart to count them) that *should* have been on the CD/ROM only, are in the hard-copy text!

I've been using Delphi since it's release of Version 1.0 and I've purchased enough books on the environment to fill several books shelves.
Xavier and Steve followup Delphi Developers Guide's 1 and 2 with an incredibly in-depth review and how-to book for Delphi 4. They dare touch the aspects of Delphi that few have done and they do it with great insight. If your starting out with Delphi or if your an Enterprise Developer looking to understand COM, DCOM, OLE Enterprise or CORBA, this book is a MUST HAVE!!!
If it's knowledge you want, these guys got it! The book is so packed with knowledge, nearly 1/3 of it is on the CD.
Don't get caught without it!!

Great chapter content. The chapters are worded great too, but I find it very annoying to have 500 pages of this book on the CD in PDF format. I go to print out pages and Adobe Acrobat 3.01 does not print the hi-lighted sections which are important notes. The chapters I need the most are on the cd. You page through the book and all of a sudden a chapters index is listed, only to have it say that it is all on the CD. Very annoying. Why can't there be two volumes?! If I had it to do over again, I would NOT buy this book. I collect books and have hundreds of programming books. This one because of the page content on CD is one of the worst values. The CD should only be for source code.

The book is every good for Delphi. But in China few Delphi programmer can get this book. What a pity! I think this book should be published in P.R. China, but I am afraid that the quality of translation. Many english books(such as <<Sepcial Edition in Delphi 2>> <<Delphi 2 Unleahed>>) that translate into Chinese with low quality, these just because the translater is not familiar with Computer or with low level.

this is some HUGE amount of information; useful information. Even when you're reading the novice/beginers chapters (only 3 out of 35), you discover very practical tips and tricks.
there are some chapters on the cd, and at first that seems inconvinient, but come to think of it, those are the least interesting or advanced chapters, so it's not a really big problem. it would have been nicer though if it came on too volumes.
