Having published it previously as three separate eBooks, the printed version of my book, Delphi XE2 Foundations, is now available. You can buy it on Amazon.com here, Amazon.co.uk here, Amazon.de here, Amazon.fr here, Amazon.es here, and Amazon.it here. If you don’t mind registering for an account, you can also get it direct from CreateSpace here (I get a better royalty rate if you do that). The price is $49.99 on Amazon.com and CreateSpace, £34.99 on Amazon.co.uk and €39.99 (or thereabouts) on the other European sites.
As I’ve previously discussed, the book takes you through the language and wider RTL as at the XE2 release, covering older and newer features alongside each other. Consequently, one chapter tackles string handling, another streams and so on. If you are an experienced Delphi user, the earlier chapters may not be so interesting while the later ones (which include coverage of OS X support at the RTL level and the newer multithreading primitives) hopefully will be; conversely, less experienced users may find the earlier chapters more relevant. To forstall misunderstandings, the book is more a reference-type one than a tutorial-type one, so I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea and be disappointed as a result.
Compared to the Kindle version, the printed one isn’t split into three parts, but does contain an index. Otherwise, the text is identical but for the correction of a few typos that I will push down to the Kindle version shortly. I’m not sure when exactly, since I’m looking to fix a few Unicode character issues at the same time (different Kindle devices and apps have varying levels of Unicode support, which is a pain). In any case, corrections will be made available to existing eBook purchasers too.
