books available -google books for purchase
« on: March 04, 2010, 03:21:04 am »
Hi-

If people are looking for books related to Lazarus besides the wiki, here are 2 available listed at Google Books. One link is an Adobe eReader version at Sams. The other link is for sale at Barnes and Noble. A third, Delphi in a Nutshell, is at Amazon and other sellers. I had tried finding availability on books a while back, and it seems that the Google listing made it a little easier to shop. I hope this helps someone new trying to get up to speed on Lazarus. The wiki is extremely cool and it is nice to have books at a fair price too!

Where are these Lazarus books? All I see in these links is Delphi books.

The only Lazarus book I know of is in German. Anyone wanting to use Lazarus for now is compelled to learn Object Pascal from Delphi books.

It's not to difficult to make the transition especially if one sticks to Delphi 6 or 7 that have IDEs similar to that of the Lazarus IDE.  :D
