"...an excellent desktop reference for Delphi."
--Kenneth Wilcox, Boise Software Developers Group, Dec 2002

"There can be few Delphi programmers who don’t
feel like tearing their hair out at least once a day
when they just can’t find the information they are
looking for. When you have exhausted the printed
documentation and online help, where do you turn to
next? If you have a copy of Ray Lischner’s
"Delphi in a Nutshell", the answer is obvious.
While this is not the only book you’ll ever need on
Delphi, it is likely to be one of the most useful
you’ll ever buy."
--PC Plus, Nov 2001

"The book is truly a programmer's reference. It helps flesh out much of the documentation provided with the Delphi program disks. It provides an exhaustive dictionary of the Delphi language, appropriate cross-references to related syntax, and terse but usable examples. " --Dallas/Ft. Worth UNIX Users Group, July 2001

Delphi Informant Magazine Readers Choice 2001 award for Best Book

"an in-depth exploration of the very heart of Delhi I predict this book will become an essential reference for every Delphi developer who adds it to his or her library." --Alan C. Moore, Delphi Informant Magazine, Nov. 2000

"Another masterful tome by Lischner. It includes so much in-depth, undocumented information that it earns a place of honor next to the all-time great Delphi books every advanced programmer should own." --Ron Loewy, Delphi Informant Magazine, August 2000

"Delphi in a Nutshell isn't the kind of book you read in the bath, but it is one every Delphi programmer should have available when out of it. --Steve Patient, amazon.co.uk, May 2000

"I've been looking for a good, solid Delphi reference book for quite awhile now & by jove, I've finally found it. All the other Delphi related books I have come across are all lacking in certain areas but Delphi in a Nutshell takes off from where all the other authors failed to complete & allows the Delphi programmer, whether they be a beginner or advanced coder, to the next level in understanding what is under the hood of the Delphi language, it is invaluable and an absolute bargain for the price. Forget all the rest, get
Delphi in a Nutshell. No Delphi developer should leave home without it. 9/10." --xploiter.com, May 2000

"Whether you are a novice or a more experienced developer, this tutorial and reference is all you need to be productive with the latest and greatest in object-oriented programming with Delphi. --Richard Dragan, amazon.com, April 2000

"Ray Lischner's Delphi in a Nutshell is a clear and concise reference to Delphi that should be a part of every Delphi developer's bookshelf. With the excitement and interest surrounding the forthcoming Kylix project, this book also becomes primer for Delphi on Linux. Developers interested in RAD Linux development would be doing themselves a favor by learning Delphi for Windows today with Lischner's new book. Delphi in a Nutshell is also significant because it brings O'Reilly's reputation as the leading publisher of books for Linux into the world of Delphi development and vice versa. Developers interested in either Windows or future Linux Delphi application development should keep this book close at hand." --Ben Riga, Director of Product Management, Inprise/Borland.

"Even though I consider myself a veteran Object Pascal and Delphi programmer, reading this book was really a learning experience. IMO, this book belongs on the shelf of every Delphi programmer, beginner or long-time professional." --Hallvard Vassbotn, Tech reviewer, April 2000

"Think of Delphi in a Nutshell as a must-have manual on the Delphi programming that blends a complete overview on the subject with the kind of nuts and bolts information that every programmer, regardless of skill level, needs every single day!" --Zarko Gajiz, Delphi Programming, about.com, April 2000
