Recommended Delphi Books

Question:
I am looking for a good introduction book to Delphi. I know Turbo Pascal, but I am still a beginner in the field of OOP and in the field of Delphi.

It is quite easy to use and manipulate predefined components with Delphi. But sometimes it is also necessary to build components from scratch and it is here that I lose my general view of things.

Can you recommend a good and thorough book for me that introduces the basic structure of Delphi and goes through the different object trees?

Answer:
A good book to learn component building is called "Developing Custom Delphi 3 Components" by Ray Konopka. The book, published by Coriolis Group, is an excellent reference for this sometime complex subject. You'll find lots of code examples there, which are actually really useful, unlike some books I've labored over.

However, for the internals, as far as I'm concerned, nothing beats "Delphi 2 Unleashed" by Charles Calvert (published by SAMS). Charlie's stuff is great, and will give you a good idea of the internals of Delphi. Highly recommended reading.
